The Crush


Potato was created in 2013 by Managing Director, Michael Kelpie, and in the 10 years since, has produced thousands of hours of successful and award-winning content, from ‘The Chase’ and ‘Ninja Warrior UK’, to ‘Billie and Greg: The Family Diaries’, ‘Ferne McCann: My Family & Me’ and ‘Autopsy, the Last Hours of…’.
In 2023, Potato expanded their production bases even further, to Belfast, to make their brand new BBC daytime quiz series, ‘The Finish Line’. This was a fantastic opportunity to connect, and work with, a brilliant local production team.

The Talent Team from Potato are going to be attending the Belfast Media Festival, hosting a coffee morning on Thursday 16th November where they welcome editorial crew interested in non-scripted to drop by.

Should you wish to attend a 1-2-1 session with the Talent Team, Please fill in an EOI form here, and they will be in touch if you are selected for a slot. 








As a Talent Manager, I’m passionate about connecting with brilliant creatives, and bringing them into the Potato team. I look for Talent who love watching our shows, and who want to kick start or build a career in Quiz/Game, Reality, and Fact Entertainment. Before moving into Talent Management, I worked in Editorial for 15 years, across Factual, Development and Daytime.



As Talent Exec for Potato, I have a keen interest in meeting and developing both experienced and new production talent for Potato's wide range of shows. With over 20 years experience in the TV industry, my career has spanned a wide range of entertainment, music and factual programming, from American Idol to The Apprentice, Blue Peter to Watchdog, and included projects with clients as diverse as Kelly Clarkson and the Beckhams.
