The cast of Paranoid!

It gives me great pleasure to confirm my special guest for #ActOnThisTV episode 4 will be TOP TV executive producer - Mr Tom Sherry!

Tom is one of the nicest guys in the business, and works at the highest peaks of the industry when it comes to TV drama.

Producing at the helm of Red Production Company, Tom has been responsible for the success of MASSIVE dramas, including Scott & Bailey, Ordinary Lies, Prey and ITV's brand new drama Paranoid.

I've wanted to bring an exec producer onto the show for some time, as it's these guys who really have the final say when it comes to casting.

We hear what casting directors are looking for all the time, but what is it that the execs really need from us actors?

I'll be sitting down in the awesome 'On The 7th' to interview Tom on the evening of September 21st 2016 - AND I WANT YOUR QUESTIONS!

There are no stupid questions - except the ones YOU DON'T ASK - so if you have a question you want Tom to answer, please submit it!

    Hi Ross
    Don’t really want to stalk Tom lol but would like to know whether it is ok if actors send him details. I think we often overlook producers for this, so would be good to know his preferred method of being contacted. Because if you don’t ask – you don’t get 🙂 Thanks!

    Hey Tom,

    Firstly I’d like to thank you for the very informative workshop you did at Act4TV on Sat. I learnt so much from you all. I would have liked to have thanked you personally but we ran over time and the second class needed to get started.

    My question is, what do you do as a producer to actively find ‘New Talent’? Do you ever spot anyone at these workshops and suggest to a CD to bring them in (nudge nudge wink wink lol?) or do you just leave that up to the CD and see who they bring in?

    Many thanks
