Ella Kelly Producer

Before 'Death in Paradise', Ella produced Series I & II of detective show 'Shakespeare & Hathaway' - the highest ever rating BBC daytime drama. Her career started in radio on an early passion: 'The Archers', soon progressing on to Radio Drama Manchester where she was part of a vibrant team developing ideas with new writers. During this time she was also script reading for Granada and working with North West Playwrights. Ella's first role in TV was as Script Editor on 'Doctors', alongside this she developed new writers for the BBC Writers Academy and went on to produce Series III of Land Girls. She moved to ITV as Story Producer on 'Emmerdale' and then Assistant Producer on 'Coronation Street'. Ella is hugely proud of her work with the strong writing and story teams across continuing drama - especially being part of the 'Hayley Cropper Exit Story' - during this time the show won the BAFTA for two years running. She went on to produce another of the nation's favourites: 'Casualty' before joining Bentley Productions to produce 'Midsomer Murders'. Ella thrives on storytelling and all that brings, working with writers, and the joy of bringing drama to the screen.
