Izzy Charman
Writer - Producer - Researcher

I am an award-winning producer, writer and research consultant. I specialize in history but have worked in many genres across TV, film and publishing.

I read history at Bristol University and graduated in 2003 with a first class degree and the History prize.

Since then I have worked in TV and film, developing & making documentaries & drama-docs for UK, US & European broadcasters, as well as feature documentaries for international cinema release. I have worked for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, History, Nat Geo, Arte, ZDF, Film4 and the BFI. I also do research and story development for feature films and drama series, both in development and production.


In 2014, I wrote my first non-fiction book to accompany the BAFTA-nominated ITV series that I produced, The Great War: The People’s Story.  My second book is on the founding and early years of London Zoo and was published in 2016 by Penguin (Viking) in the UK and Pegasus in the US. I am represented by United Agents.
