Sally Shell (legal & business affairs)

4 years ago  •  By  •  0 Comments

I qualified as a barrister a long time ago and have over 20 years legal and business affairs experience from independent commissioning at the BBC to Head of Business Affairs for Wall To Wall and Head of Commercial and Legal Affairs at Darlow Smithson Productions where I helped with strategic growth prior to its sale to IMG in 2006.

I have been the architect of a number of ground breaking access deals culminating in high profile projects such as 127 Hours,  The Diary of Anne Frank, Thriller in Manila and Stephen Hawking: Grand Design.  I also have co-production financing experience across international factual programming and latterly drama and animation, such as Peaky Blinders and Mr Bean for Tiger Aspect.

In 2013 I set up Rights Angels as an affordable means of accessing sound, pragmatic and effective legal and business affairs services for smaller production companies and individual talent.
