New production set-up aims to champion


Three senior TV executives have launched a new independent television production company which aims to challenge the lack of diversity in Britain’s creative industries. Sugar Films has been founded by Pat Younge, formerly chief creative officer at BBC Productions, Lucy Pilkington, a former Channel 4 commissioning editor, and Narinder Minhas, former director of programmes at Diverse Productions.

In an interview for the Guardian newspaper, Younge said ‘Diversity is still seen as on the fringes. We think of it as large, broad and mainstream.
