Ben is an award-winning Development Producer with extensive experience in scripted TV and Radio for the UK and International markets. He has a strong track record of developing, script editing and producing high quality comedy and drama with both emerging and established talent. Ben strongly believes that the best time to start a new job is slap bang in the middle of a global pandemic, and so he joined Stolen Picture Productions as Senior Development Producer in September 2020. Prior to that, he was at ViacomCBS where he worked across the original scripted content slates for Comedy Central UK and Paramount Drama UK. He was a Broadcast Hotshot 2016 and has worked at King Bert Productions, NBCUniversal and Carnival Films, developing and producing shows such as The Trial of Joan Collins (Sky), Quacks by BAFTA-winning James Wood (BBC Two) starring Mat Baynton, Rory Kinnear, Tom Basden and Rupert Everett, and three series of award-winning Love in Recovery by Pete Jackson for BBC Radio 4, starring Rebecca Front, John Hannah, Sue Johnston, Paul Kaye, Eddie Marsan and Johnny Vegas.
