Narinder Minhas interviewed in a new book, Creating TV Formats

June 25, 2022

Creating formats is one of the hardest things in television. It can be a real brain ache, baffling at times, a complex mix of science and art, a Rubik’s cube of mentally twisting and turning, sometimes endlessly.

Cardiff Productions’ CEO Narinder Minhas unpacks the art of creating TV formats in his interview for the new book, Creating TV Formats: From Inception to Pitch. Put together by three brilliant practitioners, Catriona Miller, Hazel Marshall and Linda Green, this is a step-by-step guide that demystifies the whole process – from developing storylines and characters, to how to hook an audience, and more.

The book is now available to purchase here, or on Amazon.
