Hi everyone, Team Viacom Talent here with the latest installment of our Twitter Q&As sessions - your chance to go behind closed doors at our Hawley HQ and find out more about what our teams get up to. This month, our followers grilled the very talented Adam Parker, who is Lead Writer and Producer at Nickelodeon. Here Adam explains what his job involves and what makes a great Nick show.
Q: Hi Adam, how did you end up becoming a producer for @NickelodeonUK?
A: Was lucky enough to secure an internship which became a job as Jnr Researcher @NickelodeonUK. Then a mix of luck & hard work!
Q: How did you get into the industry?
A: Harassed production companies & channels until they found room for me on work exp! Then worked my socks off & networked hard!
Q: Hi Adam, of all the show ideas, what makes a show stand out? What makes it a Nick show?
A: Nick shows never patronise kids - it has to be something they can relate to. Nick is funny, has heart & slime can help too!
Q: Hey Adam. Sounds like a fun job! What's the company culture like at @NickelodeonUK ?
A: It's a fun job, in a very colourful building! We are basically big kids pretending to be adults. We also love emojis!
Q: Hi Adam, what does a regular day in the office look like as a writer/producer at Nickelodeon?
Q: Wow, sounds busy, but seems like there's lots of variety?
A: Yeah, enjoy all your spare time because once you start in TV it disappears!... because you'll love it so much!
Big thanks to Adam for taking part and letting us snap his picture!
