“We are developing our drama strategy,” he explains. “We started out with half-hour impact dramas such as Burn It, before moving on to hour-long shows with greater character development like Bodies and Conviction. Now we want to bring more warmth to our drama, appealing to a wider audience. There will always be a real focus on new talent because I believe the more people bringing on new work the more interesting television will be. Casanova had a real attitude and is an example of the channel at its best.”
