Liz
Lewin

Executive Producer for Television

Liz Lewin is currently a commissioner in Sky's drama team, where she oversees a small (but perfectly formed!) slate of provocative dramas. From this slate has emerged The End by Samatha Strauss (See-Saw Films) and I Hate Suzie created by Lucy Prebble and Billie Piper (Bad Wolf), both of which she executive produced for Sky. Alongside her commissioning role Liz has developed and executive produced two series of the award winning Derry Girls, and is currently working on the 3rd series with Lisa McGee and Caroline Leddy. Derry Girls is the culmination of her long standing working relationship with Lisa McGee which started when they made the BBC pilot The Things I Haven't Told You over ten years ago. This led on to them making the comedy London Irish for Channel 4 while Liz was at Company Pictures.

Before Derry Girls and Sky, Liz had a long history of working with some of the best British writers around (Sally Wainwright, Kay Mellor, Tony Basgallop, Sue Townsend, Stephen Beresford) but also really enjoyed finding work with newer talent, working with people like Joe Barton and Iain Hollands early in their careers. She script edited Playing the Field for BBC 1 and four series of iconic Channel 4 show Teachers, produced London Irish and two series of E4 show Beaver Falls and executive produced season 3 of My Mad Fat Diary, and Phoebe Waller Bridge's Crashing. She also worked at Channel 4 in the comedy commissioning team where she oversaw a range of shows including Wasted (written by John Foster and James Lamont) and Caitlin and Caz Moran's Raised by Wolves before moving into the drama commissioning team where she looked after, amongst others, Ackley Bridge and The End of the F***ing World.
