The quality of television shows and movies has increased by leaps and bounds over the past two decades. One of the reasons behind this drastic change is the mindset of the average producer. Producers these days are willing to spend a huge chunk of money on funding promising scripts, as the rewards commensurate. Amongst the famous producers of the world today, many hail from Great Britain. One such producer of English origin is David Barron, who is known for funding two movies of the popular ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. Barron has also produced dozens of movies belonging to the ‘fantasy’ and ‘drama’ genres. John Forrest is a man who has produced many television shows, and has been known for being associated with the channel ‘BBC’ for a really long time. Other producers from Britain who have revolutionized cinema and television over the years are Charles Denton, Robert Baker, Johnny Goodman and David Bell. These people were responsible for the creation of shows such as ‘Copy Cats’, ‘The Stanley Baxter Show’, ‘The Saint’ and ‘The Persuaders’. Here is an interesting collection of biographies based on the lives of famous Briton TV and movie producers. Find out more details about their timelines, life stories, and interesting trivia & facts related to them.
