RTS NW invites Indies and Studios with a base in the North West to an informal networking event on Thursday 30th June at 19:00.

Liam Keelan will address the indies and discuss his ambitions for Disney and the opportunities for indies across all genres. The event will be an opportunity for indies to connect with one another and the we recommend attendees also buy a ticket for a future star within their organisation; this we believe will ensure the event will create greater opportunity for interaction and exchange of ideas. RTS NW Student Awards winners will also be invited to attend the event. Ticket price includes a drink and light supper. 

Liam Keelan is the Senior Vice President for Original Productions in EMEA. He is responsible for commissioning original content across all genres for Disney + and Star. Prior to joining Disney , Liam was the Director of Scripted at BBC Worldwide from 2014. He led the team responsible for securing and developing drama, comedy and children’s content from BBC Television, UK and overseas indies. Previous to this, Liam was Controller, BBC Daytime and Early Peak from February 2008. Under Liam's tenure, the schedule was revamped, with an emphasis on drama, consumer/current affairs and event-led programming.  His commissions included the Jimmy McGovern drama Moving On, quiz show Pointless, and Father Brown. Before this, Liam held positions as Controller for Daytime at ITV, Head of Scheduling and Planning for BBC One and Two and Channel Editor at UKTV. He has also acted as a media consultant for Amazon Studios and a number of independent production companies.
