After the astounding success of Bodyguard as well as the latest seasons of Line of Duty, British screenwriter and showrunner Jed Mercurio has added another notch to his belt by creating his own production label, HTM Television, supported by Hat Trick Productions. His main goal: to back up-and-coming creators and give them the tools to maintain their artistic vision throughout the development of their series. 

This exchange with producer Odile McDonald is an opportunity for Jed to share his vision of transmission, to tell how he identifies promising projects and authors and creates the ideal conditions for the creation of strong works. In particular, he looks back at the genesis of HTM Television's first two productions: Bloodlands , created by Chris Brandon around a detective determined to put an end to the eternal cycles of revenge, which will be unveiled on the BBC in the autumn; and Trigger Point , a thriller that follows the bomb disposal teams in London, created by Daniel Brierley.
