Do commissioning laps because we believe flexibility and agility are key to advancing the most ambitious ideas. We are not a PSB and we do not have the same terms and conditions. We are a unique company with a different model from any other issuer in the UK, but we promise to meet our requirements in advance and act quickly and fairly. We have already improved contract processing time. In all scenarios, except the most complex scenarios, we strive to send you the first draft contract within one week after the green light and to have concluded the contract within 4 weeks. Feedback is the best way to improve our game so that we have a clear and effective procedure for dealing with problems and the Director of the Commission, Richard.Watsham@uktv.co.uk is the man we can turn to. A spokesman for Discovery said: “We do not comment on any personnel questions. However, we can confirm that Discovery is making changes to its commissioning team for its lifestyle and entertainment channels. Our decision-making process includes a two-branch system between the commissioning department and the channel editorial team. We believe that this will allow for a creative debate and that we rigorously commission the most exciting ideas. As soon as we agree to continue the program, our production department will work with you to finalize the budget and schedule, and a member of our business affairs team will contact you to agree on the legal position. The program will then be included in our version of a program funding committee, assisted by the channel`s general manager and the commissioning director.
The channel has long been underestimated by audiences and programmers, Watsham believes. But the success of the initial commissioning changes this perception. They no longer receive proposals, “crossed out of THE BBC Three and Dave writes with a colored pencil on it,” he laughs. “The quality, breadth and innovation of what we do and the risk in some areas offer producers and talent a chance they might not have elsewhere.” Throughout the production, you work closely with the Commissionering Editor or Commissioning Executive, who will be your main point of contact at UKTV. Our marketing and press departments will start working on campaigns for the show and we will perform a weekly internal commissioning routine with the channel teams and all project participants in order to stay informed of the progress of the project. . . .
