Personal Quote:

We're not producers. We're psychologists. The great trick is when you want to tell the talent something they don't want to hear, you always say "We don't think it would be a good idea...". It never fails. [interview with The Independent in 2007]

Trivia:

By the early 1990s, he had established his own independent production house - Michael Hurll Television - which continues to provide programming for the television networks, and is responsible in particular for the annual British Comedy Awards. See more »
