Named as one of Broadcast’s Hot Shots for 2010 and a Fast Track graduate, Kate Monaghan is markthree’s Managing Director and in-house ideas factory. Most recently Kate has been producing and executive producing content for the BBC – from the one hour documentary ‘Are You Having A Laugh? TV and Disability’ with David Walliams to Mismatch, on BBC Comedy, she has many strings to her bow. Starting her TV life on children’s favourite Blue Peter, she then went behind the scenes at the beeb working on Doctor Who Confidential, before moving into the TV development world at a number of indies. She was then headhunted to direct a half-hour documentary for Channel 4 at the ripe old age of 22 as part of the New Shoots series for directors with a disability. Kate’s disability keeps things interesting as we never know if she’ll be walking around or wheeling in her purple chair. Whichever it is, it’s always done at high speed.
