BBC's Children's Head of Content

BBC Children's

Despite a sober Quaker upbringing, Cheryl has always loved Drama and Entertainment and embarked on a media career in 1987 as a VT Editor at McCann Erickson London. She worked her way into a commissioning role at Channel Four via stints in Comic Relief and BBC Entertainment. At Channel Four, Cheryl commissioned Spaced and Black Books, as well as the first Derren Brown extravaganza in 2000.

After a spell as Head of Comedy at Hat Trick Productions Cheryl returned to the BBC comedy department and became Controller in 2009 and commissioned Mrs Brown’s Boys, The Wrong Mans, Citizen Khan, Twenty Twelve and Bad Education, amongst others. Cheryl was appointed Controller of CBBC in September 2012 and continues the grand tradition of commissioning inspiring content for children aged 6-12 across the UK. CBBC shows aim to reflect and reveal life experiences and viewer participation plays a key part in its public service offering. Recent commissions include Our School, Hank Zipzer, All at Sea, Ludus (CBBC's first playalong series), and The Dog Ate My Homework.
