Melanie’s first job in TV was as a researcher for Thames TV but since then she has nearly always worked in the indy sector, producing and directing a diverse portfolio of award-winning children’s drama, comedy and factual series for ITV and Channel 4. Bill’s New Frock adapted by Andrew Davies won the RTS and Broadcast Awards for Best Children’s Drama in 1998.
Melanie briefly returned to ITV where she worked with Anne as the Head of Development for Granada Kids. Here, she oversaw a number of successful commissions but when the opportunity arose to set up Kindle Entertainment with Anne and get back to the indy sector, Melanie seized it. Their partnership is founded on a shared passion for producing stories that stand out from the crowd and make you want to go back for more.
