Kaye Godleman Joins Green Bay

3rd August 2009

Green Bay is delighted to announce the arrival of Executive Producer Kaye Godleman who has joined the company under the Talent Attraction Scheme.

The Scheme has the active backing of the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. It's designed to equip independents to benefit from the targeted increase in UK network production from Wales.

Kaye Godleman's track-record positions her ideally to take advantage of "the perfect platform" which the Scheme affords. Her most recent productions are Madonna and Mercy for Channel 4, Tears, Lies and Videotape for ITV1 and Accidental Heroes for BBC1.

Kaye's credits also include What Not To Wear, The Apprentice - You're Fired, Dish It Up With Neneh And Andi, Saving Planet Earth Live, The Money Programme, Live 8 and Home Front.

The award of three years' financial support to Green Bay comes from a specially-appointed panel of senior executives from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4. The Scheme is a unique partnership between Skillset, Creative Business Wales, Pact and major Broadcasters.

Chief Executive of Skillset, Dinah Caine, said: "This initiative is real. It's on the ground. And it provides a long term solution for building capability and structures which can springboard the Welsh production industry into being a major player both nationally and internationally."

As part of their commitment, the participating broadcasters provide access to their relevant commissioning teams. Already Kaye Godleman has instigated a series of development meetings with a slate of projects moving forward towards commissioning. Kaye has also won a place for Green Bay on the BBC's prestigious XM25 initiative which is designed to boost independent output from outside London still further.
