With over 30 years of production experience and numerous awards to her name, Jo has worked with much of the finest talent in British TV drama and comedy. Most recently she has produced the second series of MANHUNT, starring Martin Clunes, for Buffalo Pictures/ITV. The first series averaged over 9 million viewers.

“This sober, responsible production has managed to avoid the temptation of hyping it as Martin Clunes’s first foray into straight drama and aggrandising him or the production at the victims’ expense. Clunes does fine work as an utterly ordinary detective finding himself in charge of an utterly extraordinary investigation.”
“It takes a very good actor to make a real, do-it-by-the-book detective, who isn’t a hard drinker and doesn’t shoot from the hip, come alive on screen.”
“Even though we know the outcome, I found myself rooting for Sutton and his team. I’ll be glued over the next two nights as the net closes in.”
“This seemed to me a sober and responsible attempt to tell a true story of good police work making connections and getting results which probably saved lives…this was another ITV crime drama of the highest order.”
“This is a realistic glimpse into actual policing, where originality counts a good deal less than persistence.”
