Joss
Agnew

Director for film and television

Joss Agnew's distinctive approach to main-stream drama has resulted in his lead-director role on series 3 and 4 of Mammoth Screen's high-profile series Poldark. Previous to this Joss directed the finale episodes of ITV's comedy/drama Brief Encounters with Penelope Wilton, Sophie Rundle & Sharon Rooney.

Employing his cinematic and energetic style Joss has directed further prime-time shows such as Mr Selfridge, Law & Order:UK and the dark action-based drama Jekyll and Hyde starring Tom Bateman and Richard E Grant. Previously, in the challenging area of Children's drama Joss' inventive work on The Sarah Jane Adventures, The Story of Tracy Beaker and Young Dracula has earned him 3 RTS Awards.
