Broadcast Digital Awards

Rebecca Hewett-Farmer

Executive Producer, Paramount

Rebecca Hewett-Farmer has the enviable accolade of each of her five most recent productions earning Broadcast Digital Award nominations – two of which translated into wins. The victorious pair of Comedy Central shows illustrate her mission to champion diversity and tell under-represented stories: transgender comedian Jordan Gray’s online sitcom Transaction and Drunk History: Black Stories, a variant of the comedy history format that celebrated black heroes throughout the ages.

Hewett-Farmer has carved out this niche since producing Rosie Tries To Help, a Comedy Central short featuring comic Rosie Jones. The producer continues this drive with her most recent sketch show, East Mode With Nigel Ng, which employs a majority East and South-East Asian cast and crew, as well as working an Executive across Comedy Central’s linear programming, including Guessable with Sara Pascoe and Alan Davies, Most Ridiculous with Darren Harriot and Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains.
