Award-winning comedy producer, Catherine, spent 12 years in BBC Comedy before going freelance in 2013.
With a strong background in line producing and production management, Catherine worked on shows including Dead Ringers, Come Fly With Me and The Thick Of It before she made the move into producing, where her first job as a producer was the much-loved Big Babies for CBBC, which was nominated for a Children’s BAFTA. Produced on a very low budget, the show combined live action, filming with babies and puppets, and CGI.
Catherine has since produced two series of the single camera sitcom Pramface for BBC3 and the second series of Adil Ray’s multi-camera sitcom Citizen Khan for BBC1, which won an RTS North West Award for Best Comedy. She also co-produced an affectionate look at the history of the home of BBC television in Tales of Television Centre, and produced John Morton’s Olympics spoof, Twenty Twelve, which won the BAFTA for Best Comedy. Catherine also produced the one hour comedy drama Walter for BBC1, starring Adrian Dunbar and Alexandra Roach.
After producing Three Kinds of Stupid for Little Comet and Sky's physical comedy season, Catherine produced two series of Two Doors Down for the BBC, and is now producing Derry Girls for Hat Trick and Channel 4.
