Speaker Polly Scates



Polly Scates

Senior Acquisitions Manager

Channel 4

Based in London, Polly leads on non-scripted presales and acquisitions for both the linear portfolio (C4, M4, E4 & E4 Extra) and VOD platform. Polly has been instrumental in developing C4’s unscripted pre-buy strategy, delivering successes such as, Chernobyl: The New Evidence, Griff’s Canadian Adventure and Grierson Award winner The Arctic Drift, for the channel. She has played a significant role in the growth of True Crime on 4, securing boxsets My Name Is Reeva, I, Sniper and Moors Murders for the strand.

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
