TV Production insights – podcast with James Dean

We are delighted to release the second Creative Callings podcast featuring TV Production insights with James Dean.


James Dean is the producer and director of some of the biggest factual and reality programs in the UK and the US.  Ten years ago, he bagged an unlikely commission from BBC and Sky, pitching the most surreal and bizarre comedy series: This is Jinsy!

From then on, James’ career has seen an escalation of successful series, leading up to latest big hit: the gripping thriller, Liar on ITV.  We meet him on zoom, just before the killer is revealed, only to discover funny anecdotes and practical advice on how to find a steady flow of work in television…

James Dean is an Elected Member of the BAFTA TV Committee and a freelance producer and director for Welded Tandem Picture Company and Ashmore Films

This podcast was recorded and edited by Collage Works. The talk was part of the Tottenham Creative Enterprise Zone business skills project N17 Creative Callings funded by the Mayor of London and European Social Fund.
