TV Production Terms

As we speak to more people looking to get in to our industry, we realised that not everyone understands all the TV production terms we use. Therefore, below is a list of terms with a detailed explanation as to what they are and what this means.


There are different types of directors depending on what kind of programme they are in charge of. Directing a live programme will be a completely different experience to directing on a drama set. A director is the person who is in charge of the activities on set, and is the one in charge of making editorial decisions on the content.


The producer will oversee everything that is happening on the project from beginning to end.


The job is in the name. They research everything that the project is about to make sure it is well informed, and help with the organisation and planning. They can help with filming and sound as well.
