Amy Buscombe

Amy is the Commissioning Editor for 6-16 scripted content (Independents) at BBC Children’s, working to the Head of Content Cheryl Taylor across comedy, drama and digital narrative. Recent titles include ‘So Awkward’, ‘Jamie Johnson’, ‘Joe All Alone’, ‘Secret Life of Boys’, improvised iPlayer-only drama ‘Logan High’ and new commission ‘The A List’.

Amy is particularly interested in thrilling, ambitious drama ideas with scale and purpose, projects that have a global passport but are still UK-relevant, and cheeky narrative comedies with heart, in a non-family setting.
