Caroline Richards

Head of Production

Caroline RichardsCaroline started as a runner and, she’s proud to say, worked as such on landmark series Our Friends in the North. She moved her way up the AD ladder, through to Production Manager then Line Producer on many different dramas and comedies.  She’s filmed in many countries around the world like Morocco, Japan, Canada, Colombia and likes to show off by saying that in one twelve month period she shot on four continents.

She was present at seminal TV moments, notably when PJ (Ant McPartlin) was ‘blinded’ on Byker Grove, when Daniel Craig admitted he didn’t have a driving licence as he was about to drive a pink Rolls Royce in Battersea Power Station and she’s been to the pub with Catherine Zeta Jones. She got her police series stripes on shows like Dalziel and Pascoe and 55 Degrees North and and once swore she’d NEVER do another period drama (how wrong she was).

She first came to Big Talk as Line Producer on the marvellous The Job Lot series 2 and 3 and the fabulous series Mum, and took over as Head of Production as maternity cover in 2016. She’s still there.
