This week it's the turn of Rival Media's Steve Wynne. Before launching Rival in March this year with fellow producer Howard Myers, Wynne has formed an impressive CV, having for worked for Five, Buena Vista Television, The Disney Channel, Warner Brothers International Television, as well as winning the odd Bafta and RTS Award along the way while producing shows for Disney, and the greatly missed SMTV and CD:UK on ITV.
