Jed Mercurio, a four-time nominee as Best Drama Writer for both the Royal Television Society and Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, is one of the few British screenwriters to work as a showrunner. His most recent productions, the serial award-winners Bodyguard and Line of Duty, have broken audience records in the UK, with Line of Duty being nominated for 10 BAFTA Awards. Jed’s other credits include Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Critical, Strike Back, RTS Award-winning Bodies, The Grimleys and Cardiac Arrest.

In his keynote session, titled “Talent Behind the Camera”, Jed Mercurio will discuss writers’ and showrunners’ many responsibilities as they write and/or executive produce, supervise other writers, manage talent and maintain relationships with studios, channels and platforms. At the end of the session on Wednesday 17 October, Jed Mercurio will be presented with a WORLD SCREEN TRENDSETTER AWARD, in partnership with MIPCOM, in recognition of his contribution to the international television industry.
