Development Assistant Producer
Patrick’s UK telly career began at Blast! Films, where he worked across UK and US development before going on to work as a researcher on the award-winning Jade: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain. As a lifelong Big Brother fanatic, it was a dream opportunity for Patrick.
He came to Lion after a long stint as a Development AP at BriteSpark Films, where he also worked on Coronavirus: How Britain is Changing, a 60-minute film for Channel 4 Dispatches. His TV career began in earnest when he interned at New York-based production companies Departure Films and Punched.TV during a yearlong J-1 visa programme.
Patrick has a background in journalism with a masters degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Sheffield and freelance experience at BBC Newsnight.
