The Team

The bobs

Jacqueline Hewer
Creative Director and Co-Founder

Jacqueline is responsible for developing, pitching and executive producing across Brown Bob’s varied output. She has excellent contacts across the industry and is a demon in the edit.
She previously worked at the BBC in News & Current Affairs, before becoming a BBC commissioner for factual and factual entertainment. She was also Head of Daytime at Leopard Films.
She has an impeccable brown bob.

Nicki Gottlieb
Managing Director and Co-Founder

Nicki is responsible for all accounts, budgets, contracts, deals – we could go through the whole alphabet, but you get the drift.
She’s always doing 25 things at once, and takes efficiency to a whole new level. She has extensive experience across a range of primetime award-winning series, volume formats, and high-end arts programming.
She used to have a brown bob, but now totally rocks the blonde locks.

Yasmin Pasha
Development Executive

Yasmin heads up Brown Bob’s development. She specialises in nurturing our trademark access relationships, and is always looking for new talent and commissioner contacts.

With access at the heart of everything we do, Yasmin holds a stake in the company.

The team

Audrey Neil
Executive Producer Inside the Vets

After being instrumental in the success of Inside the Ambulance Audrey passed on the baton and is now looking after Inside the Vets. Her range of experience covers everything from Blue Peter to Celebrities in Therapy. We’ve yet to see her fazed by anything.

Daisy Scalchi
Series Producer Inside the Ambulance

Daisy is over the moon to be a Brown Bob. She series produces across the Inside the Ambulance brand. She brings over 15 years' experience in specialist factual, formats and obs doc, and believes there is always a solution to every problem.

Bridget Snyed
Executive Producer Inside the Ambulance

Bridget joined Brown Bob to oversee all things Ambulance. She has extensive experience exec-ing a wide range of factual series and singles across all channels and can triage an edit in her sleep (or awake from a hammock in Cornwall).

Grace Hetherington
Development Assistant Producer

Before joining Brown Bob, Grace worked for a range of indies and in house at both the BBC and ITV. Her ideas always have human interest at their core and she is an advocate of knowing random facts, for example; did you know that a chicken’s maximum speed is 9mph?

Jess Hamilton
Production Manager

Jess brings her experience of high volume, high quality programmes to production manage across our output. Her previous credits include First Dates Hotel and Selling Houses. Her eyeliner is legendary.

Azalea Reason
Researcher

Azalea has enough enthusiasm for the entire office, and works tirelessly to make sure our contributors are well-informed and well-looked after. She’d rather drink tea than coffee and prefers Instagram to Facebook

Rowan Moss
Junior Production Manager

Rowan’s wealth of experience across high intensity prime-time programming makes him the go-to for all things logistical and technical. His previous credits include 24 Hours in A&E & The Undateables. Rowan is growing his beard in a bid to make his cats view him as their furry father.

Shakir Kadri
Development Assistant Producer

Shak is an experienced AP and the engine room when it comes to developing new formats for major broadcasters and online content providers. Previous credits include Dara & Ed’s Road to Mandalay and The Week the Landlords Moved In. His laugh is infectious and his imagination as wild as his hair.

Helen Sear
Production Manager

Helen's experience is varied, working in the sun in Sydney on Bake-Off, in the Welsh countryside on SAS: Who Dares Wins and in glamorous Luton on EasyJet: Inside the Cockpit. A homage to her years in the Brownies, she is always prepared with emergency chocolate in her handbag.

Ellie Matthews
Production Secretary

Ellie has come all the way from Down Under to join the team at Brown Bob. She brings experience and a can-do attitude. She tried to bring her kangaroo but unfortunately it wouldn’t pass customs.

Jacqui Porter
Development Assistant Producer

Jacqui is a Northern powerhouse, bringing some Liverpool glamour to the office. After a stint in TV in Australia, she's returned to her home here at Brown Bob where she continues to come up with weird and wonderful ideas. Recent credits include Inside the Ambulance, Location Location Location and Think Tank. You can normally find her raiding the snack cupboard.

Adrienne Wellings
Production Co-ordinator

Adrienne is incredibly organised and always calm. She previously worked at Reef Television, coordinating shows including Lucy Worsley’s Nights at the Opera and Paul Hollywood’s City Bakes. She can whisk up a cracking call sheet and makes a lovely cuppa tea.
