Secrets Lies and Private Eyes

Production Company: October Films
Broadcaster: Discovery+
Episodes: 6×60

Four female-led private investigation agencies open their doors to the inner-workings of their cases. The private investigators tackle a number of cases involving missing persons, infidelity, cold cases and fraud. Part fixed-rig part ops-doc this series was shot during the pandemic over 12 weeks on location in Georgia and Tennessee. As well as series producing, I also self-shot for the first five weeks on location in Tennessee (in fact the entirety of the first episode excluding interviews and drone was shot by me). Along with the Exec, I led casting (including contracting) talent. I also worked with the brilliant team at Minicams.tv to develop a small fixed rig camera system that could be flown to the USA and rigged by me on location. This allowed us to operate cameras remotely – including from the UK.
