Since then, Campayo has acted as executive producer on titles such as Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, The Bachelorette, Fboy Island Spain, Job Interview: You’re Hired, The Fears Of… and In Search Of Nirvana.

Campayo was previously co-executive producer at Shine Iberia for the first edition of MasterChef Junior in 2013, as well as executive creative director at PosidoniaTV where, from 2010 to 2012, she was responsible for formats such as El Tercero En Discordia, La Reina Y Yo and The 23F. 

Prior to that, she was the deputy director of entertainment content for Boomerang TV, where she developed, between 2007 and 2010, programs such as Pekín Express and El Diario De Patricia.

Zeppelin, meanwhile, which was launched in 1992, is responsible for the introduction of reality programming in Spain, with productions including Secret Story, Big Brother, The Bridge and SKAM España.
