Julian Bellamy

As the new year gets underway, TBI talks to some of the biggest names in the global TV industry to get their thoughts on the major trends and best shows coming up in the next 12 months.

Here, Julian Bellamy, managing director of ITV Studios, talks consolidation, Succession and a scripted expansion.


What is the biggest growth area for your company this year?

Our scripted slate – from Franklin on Apple TV+ to Django for Sky and Canal+ , it’s a big drama year for our group.

What is the key trend going to be this year?

The relentless rise of reboots will approach its peak – and keep an eye on the growth of AVOD and FAST channels.

What is your New Year’s resolution and why?

Somehow find more time to watch more TV – I can’t keep up!

What will be the biggest headline in 2023 and why?

Consolidation will continue, so I suspect it’ll be another big M&A story.

What show (from outside of your own company) are you most looking forward to?

I’m counting down the days until the the next season of Succession.
