Preview – Teen Titans Assemble – Commissioner Conversations Teen

Posted on: Monday 13 June 2022 4:44pm by Jackie Edwards

Jackie Edwards is co-Executive Producer of the Commissioner Conversations at CMC 2022. Here she outlines the teens commissioners’ session.

Alright. It’s not sidekicks to Justice League superheroes, but it’s not far off. We have assembled the Premiere League of commissioners of teen content in the UK for your edification. Join them in the DC (da Crucible) to find out what they’ve been up to in the last couple of years, what they’ve been commissioning, what audiences are hankering for and what their commissioning plans are for the coming year.

Karl Warner, Head of Youth and Digital at C4, Evie Buckley, commissioning digitally for young audiences across C4 and beyond, Helen Foulkes from BBC Education and Sioned Geraint at S4C will be sharing their insights and plans. The panel is moderated by Harriet Williams from the Young Audiences Content Fund, who is not a teenager, but does often get asked for ID.

There have been some beautiful, compelling and Heartstopping (do you see what I did there?) teen shows land recently – come and find out what UK broadcasters are doing to inform, entertain and thrill this important but traditionally underserved audience.

This session is at 2-3pm on Thursday 7 July in the Crucible.

Bookable Speed Meetings at 3.30-4.30pm. Open to all – but need to be booked when the link is sent out to delegates at 6pm on 6th July.
