Matt was previously Head of Development at Comedy Central and, as a writer and producer, he has developed sitcoms – including BBC Two’s HEBBURN with stand up Jason Cook starring Jim Moir and Gina McKee – and several projects with broadcasters that he has either written or co-written. 

He set up Channel X North where he won a number of commissions including three Comedy Labs for Channel 4, SWIZZCALL, SLATERWOOD and HUNG OUT; the BBC Three sitcom LUNCH MONKEYS; and HEBBURN, all of which he either produced or executive produced. Matt is currently developing a feature film as Writer and Producer titled BOTTLING IT; a feature film as producer titled WASN'T EXPECTING THAT; he is writing a TV Comedy Series with Various Artists titled THE SUNNY SIDE; co-writing a TV series with Ellie Taylor for Tiger Aspect called THREE SISTERS and Exec Producing OTHER PEOPLE'S STUFF under Channel X.

Matt started his career as a radio reporter in his home city of Plymouth before moving into factual television with Two Four Productions and brings a journalistic nouse to scripted shows. As a freelance producer/director Matt won two commissions for The Other Side, Channel 4’s late night documentary strand, including BARE & BREAKFAST, a revealing but non-judgmental documentary about naturist guest houses. This led to Matt working with Tiger Aspect Productions where he developed and then produce/directed the hit BBC One observational documentary BAILIFFS, which ran for three series.

A love of writing and performing prompted Matt’s move into television comedy. He has taken several shows to the Edinburgh Fringe including LADYKILLER in 2005, after which long established comedy-indie Channel X asked him to head their company in Manchester. Matt has also performed musical comedy on the circuit and was recently commissioned by Channel 4 to make a short pilot of his musical sitcom, FOOD OF LOVE, which he wrote, produced and directed. 

Matt enjoys both writing alone and collaborating, particularly with stand-ups, and most recently he developed a project co-written with talented comedian Ellie Taylor with Comedy Central. He is encouraging of new talent and writes a well-liked blog, Foot in the Door, about forging a career in the media on his website, www.matttiller.com
