Indie Strawberry Blond has launched a new Glasgow office, which will be headed up by Series Producer Hannah Smith.
The Strawberry Blond Glasgow office will build a new team to win commissions in entertainment, features, and children’s & youth series.
Hannah Smith is a Series Producer at Strawberry Blond and has recently won a new fifth series commission from CBBC for The Playlist (30 x 25’). She also looks after The Live Lounge Show (BBC4), and produces More 4’s hit series The Great British Dig.
The Glasgow office will be the third to be launched by the company, which also has its London base and its Bristol sister label, Super Best Quality Video Productions, run by Joe McVey. Super Best recently announced a new UKTV series commission for The Island which shoots at Pinewood Studios next month.
Steve Wynne, Founder and CEO of Strawberry Blond, says “We have so many Scottish people working in our team that it seemed only fair to let them work in their own country, rather than drag them down to London. As someone who hails from the North West, I know what it’s like to have to leave your hometown and move to London where everything has an extra zero on the end. We want happy workers who properly represent the nations and regions – as they will develop and produce the types of shows the ever-growing number of devolved commissioners will be after. Hannah Smith is an extremely talented producer and she’s going absolutely smash Glasgow, in a good way. Can’t wait to visit her and the team there for our first Irn Bru.”
