Nesta Owens oversees buying for Discovery Networks in what the firm describes as the ‘CEEMEA’ region – a vast area covering central and eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Programme-sourcing across Europe, the Middle East and Africa is handled centrally by Nesta Owens. Some big successes for the Discovery Networks in recent times have been Dynamo: Magician Impossible for Discovery Channel, trash-to-cash programmes have also proved successful while One Born Every Minute has also been highly impactful for Discovery Networks as it plays out on TLC. Nesta and her team are constantly on the lookout for great shows. We are looking forward to hearing from Nesta at MediaCon.
