UK kids TV veterans Jesse Cleverly and Miles Bullough launched producer Wildseed to back new talent and incubate and development new ideas, and the firm includes a dedicated comedy arm. “This is exactly why Wildseed Comedy was set up; to work fearlessly with a new generation of British comedy talent to produce fresh and original content that viewers actually want to enjoy,” said Bullough.
