Which area of innovation in television excites you the most and why?
I am excited to see what is going to be the next chapter of the “streaming wars“ and in that context, how subscale SVoDs are able to focus on cultural & language differences to reach their local audiences.
What do you think is the current biggest challenge for the UK television industry?
Fragmentation, differences of views on the importance of UK’s creative industry and global players setting the trends.
What is the one change you think is critical for the industry?
Consolidation and more collaboration to maximise the impact media and entertainment can have in our society.
What might “watching TV” look like in 2030?
For some content I think it will exactly the same as now. And probably, for others, there will be some different “universes” created!
What is your current favourite TV Show?
Just about to finish the latest season of Killing Eve – absolutely loved it!
What is your desert island luxury item?
Tons of books. Whenever I have time, I can spend hours and hours reading any good book.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I am a published author of 3 fiction books and I collaborate in press about literature and culture.
If you weren’t working in this sector, where would you be working?
I often think that if I were to start all over again, I’d train as a journalist.
