Janet Chute

Janet Chute is an experienced television producer who has worked across a range of genres, including documentaries, factual, factual entertainment and current affairs. She actually started her broadcast career in radio, at Newstalk in Ireland, before moving to the UK to study for an MA in Bi-Media Journalism at Trinity and All Saints College, University of Leeds. 

Ultimately, she decided to pursue a career in television, with her first job working in development before moving over to political programmes. She soon found work as an assistant producer on such varied series and one-shots  as Channel 4’s SuperScrimpers (2011); Channel 5’s Britain’s Bravest (2008); and a BBC Panorama investigation into sexual bullying in schools, entitled Kids Behaving Badly (2009), which led to changes to government policy. As a producer, Janet has continued to deliver a diverse factual slate that includes Channel 4’s The Billion Pound Flower Market (2016); BBC’s Abortion on Trial (2017) and Discovery’s Body Bizarre (2018-2019). One special career highlight was as development producer for the double BAFTA-nominated and Broadcast Digital Award-winning documentary, Charlie Hebdo: 3 Days that Shook Paris (2015), for More 4. 

Currently, Janet has a documentary in advanced development with co-production partners Clover Films and Cable Street Films, which she’s aiming to get commissioned and produce and direct in 2022. This is just one of many original ideas she wants to make over the coming years.
