In her new role as a member of Blink’s senior editorial team, Jones will be responsible for winning further business and executive producing projects, with a particular focus on building the company’s slate of access-driven international series.

Prior to joining Blink, Jones co-founded Antidote Productions, where she was responsible for originating and exec producing content including Professor Green: Suicide & Me (BBC 3/1), Olly Alexander: Growing Up Gay (BBC 1/3) and What Makes a Woman (Channel 4).

Justine Kershaw and Dan Chambers, co-Founders of Blink Films, said: “Laura is an outstanding producer and great creative force. Since she arrived, she has created and overseen multiple high-profile series, with more to come. As we build on our expanding slate and international client base, with orders from Discovery+, Hulu, CBS and Paramount +, alongside Channel 4, Smithsonian and National Geographic and more in pre-production, promoting Laura to creative director will help us keep this momentum going.”
