ANDREW JACKSON oversees Discovery Channel’s Specials & Events – "the big projects.” These include epic landmark programs for the Discovery Channel including FROZEN PLANET, CURIOSITY, AFRICA, NORTH AMERICA, WINGED PLANET, SHARK WEEK and the epic live event SPACE JUMP among many other hours of programming.

For years, being part of the BBC was one of the only ways to get a BIG idea in front of the Discovery Channel but Andrew is actively reaching out to the larger production community for new, ambitious ideas. At this month’s Insider, he’ll talk about how the TV landscape is changing and how he needs new ideas for Discovery’s evolving Specials slate.

Andrew has a rich pedigree in documentary production. He joined the Discovery Channel from the BBC where he was Head of the Natural History Unit, a role he took up in 2009. He was the first Head of the Unit to come from the independent sector, joining from Tigress Productions where he had been Managing Director, leading a team that built the Company into one of Discovery Communications’ largest UK suppliers of natural history, science and adventure programming.
