Factual indie Blink Films, part of the Tin Roof Media group, has appointed BAFTA and RTS-winning producer Laura Jones as Executive Producer, Special Projects.
In her new role she will be responsible for winning business and executive producing projects as she helps to expand Blink’s factual slate.

She’s already hit the ground running with several projects in development and pre-production including an ambitious series for a global streamer. With recent high-profile successes for platforms and broadcasters in the UK and internationally, this feels like the ideal time to expand our team and keep the momentum going.”
Laura Jones added: “I’ve really enjoyed working with Justine and Dan in the past and the opportunity to join up with them again was too good to turn down. Blink has an incredibly talented and creative team across development and production and I’m relishing seeing what we can make together.”
