Jen Whyntie

Head of Development

As Head of Development for both Telltale and Antica Productions, Jen helps clients and creatives to share their stories in the fast-growing terrain between audio and premium TV.

She previously worked at the BBC for over a decade as a producer, development producer and content editor. Personal highlights include co-creating multi award-winning global hit CrowdScience, series producing the joyful Curious Cases of Rutherford & Fry, and making the climate-friendly travel show that’s going nowhere, Your Place Or Mine With Shaun Keaveny.

Jen’s worked in partnership with experts at institutions including the Universities of Oxford & Cambridge, NASA, Wellcome and the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. This experience – plus being an autistic parent, teaching science in UK secondary schools, and competing for public attention with a herd of African elephants whilst working as a zoo educator – means she also wields an honorary doctorate in cat herding with aplomb.
