As a young man Shane Murphy forsook the glamour of the inner city classrooms of Dublin and London for the drudgery of Television. 25 years on, he has worked in various sectors of Television in the UK, Far & Middle East and US.
Shane has negotiated commissions and acquisitions for broadcasters Discovery Communications and Tara Television; developed and acquired dram, comedy and factual productions for distributors Fremantle Media, Granada International, Carlton International and overseen Commercial Affairs for producers Tiger Aspect and Leopard Films.
He now works as a consultant, splitting his time between clients in London and Dublin. For Deadpan Pictures, he is responsible for UK TV co-producer and distributor relationships.
