Kate Maddigan

BA Media Arts (1998), Commissioner, Entertainment ITV.

Kate's current role is to find and oversee production of entertainment programmes for ITV main channel as well as the digital channels ITV2, 3 and 4.

"Being at Royal Holloway was the first time I met people who had similar hopes and ambitions as mine - to work in film or television. This atmosphere of like-minded creativity gave me the space and confidence to explore my own ideas and share in other peoples'. The facilities on site enabled me to try things - some good, some terrible - but also gave me a good overview of the technical side of the business which has stood me in good stead ever since. Discussing and learning how to study other people's work in the lecture rooms helped me critique my own efforts and now in commissioning I am able to analyse and breakdown a pitch to see what may or may not work all skills I learned and honed at Royal Holloway."
