Format rights lawyer & 'crisis PR' expert Jonathan Coad

Season 2, Ep. 5

Jonathan Coad is a media lawyer who is an expert in format rights, having worked on notable cases for 'I'm A Celebrity...' and 'The Great British Bake Off'. He explains how those formats were defended, and what practical steps devisors can take to protect themselves. Later, he also gives us a glimpse into the world of 'crisis PR' - being the person that celebrities turn to when a negative news story is about to break. There's also Part 2 in David & Justin's occasional series on how to pitch, and the usual news and features.
