Sharp Jack Sharpens Music Policy

Sharp Jack Media, the new production company launched by senior ITV entertainment executives Amanda Wilson and Elliot Johnson, has appointed Accorder to look after their music publishing interests. The duo, who launched Sharp Jack earlier this year to develop entertainment, factual and quiz formats, have won the backing of BBC Worldwide via a development and distribution deal. They’ve already been commissioned by Sky for a one-off Winners: Cheerleaders about the trials and tribulations of being a rugby league cheerleading squad. Amanda and Elliot, whose credits include The Chase, Who Dares Sings and Four Weddings, have a slate that already boasts big, bold multiplatform formats ready to be launched on the global stage.
