Video Interview: BBC Studios’ Sumi Connock

Sumi Connock, creative director of formats at BBC Studios, talks to TV Formats about some of the drivers of the company’s format strategy and shares her view of which genres are proving hottest these days.

The BBC Studios format catalog contains an enviable number of hits by any distributor’s standards, from Dancing with the Stars to Bake Off. Added to its success in the entertainment space is the traction its scripted shows have been finding with local versions across the globe, with Doctor Foster, Luther and The Office among those getting international remakes in the last year.
