Nicola Lees


Public bio

I have worked in TV for more than 15 years, and have specialized in developing factual programmes (mainly science and history, but also some lifestyle formats) for channels in the UK and USA. I have worked in London and NYC and love shaping ideas in development and shaping films in the edit suite. I am the founder of and author of Greenlit: Developing Factual/Reality TV Ideas From Concept to Pitch and Give Me the Money and I'll Shoot! Finance Your Factual TV/Film Project.

I also run a couple of career development schemes for people working in flim/TV production and recently started working with ex-offenders who have practical skills and/or creative ideas that could lead to a meaningful (and life-changing) career in film/TV.
