Simon is currently Development Producer on THE ART OF FOLEY for Slim film + television/Channel 4, a series that stemmed from a run of three Comedy Blaps released in 2015 which Simon developed from their inception and subsequently script edited.
Since the development commission of a full series, he has worked with writers Richard Hardisty & Andy Needle on two half hour scripts and a series bible for Channel 4, attaching key cast along the way. Meanwhile, Simon has put together his own comedy slate at Slim, working with a number of other exciting up-and-coming writers.
He started his career as a runner at Kudos, before leaving to join former MD Simon Crawford Collins at Slim in 2012. Following a stint as Development Coordinator, as well as serving as In-House Production Coordinator on Paula Milne’s single film LEGACY for BBC2, Simon was attached as Script Editor on the development of a number of comedy and drama series for Slim. There he worked intensively with producers and writers in the room, on a range of ambitious projects for all of the major UK broadcasters.
