David Sumnall, Managing Director Middlechild Productions

After years of making documentaries, series and winning commissions for other indies, David decided to set up Middlechild Productions. After 18 months of no income and incredible patience from his wife, David got lucky when Ben Frow took over at Channel 5 and brought with him a passion for our four legged furry friends. Soon after, The Dog Rescuersseries with Alan Davies was born and nearly 70 hours later, and with a whole host of other productions under his belt, David is still riding his luck! Although nowadays, that’s mixed with a large dose of hard work and a lot of creativity.
