Faith Penhale


Lookout Point

Faith began her career in drama production over 20 years ago and has worked on a broad range of shows; from a BAFTA-winning era of EastEnders and the multi award winning espionage series Spooks, to Andrew Davies’ critically acclaimed adaptation of War & Peace. Faith worked for ten years at Kudos before running BBC Wales Drama from 2011-2016. Her track record there included the global phenomenon Sherlock and much-loved Doctor Who, amongst many other authored pieces collaborating with some of the UK’s most exciting writing talent. From there she joined Lookout Point where, as CEO, she oversees a vibrant slate, including Sally Wainwright’s hugely successful Gentleman Jack for BBC and HBO, Andrew Davies’ recent, highly acclaimed adaptation of the Victor Hugo classic Les Misérables and the forthcoming, ground-breaking adaptation of Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy, directed by Mira Nair.
