We’re thrilled that Director Nour Wazzi was tipped as a future star on BBC’s emerging talent hotlist of 2017.
BBC director general Tony Hall and actor Idris Elba hosted a special event to unveil the initiatives, as well as to publish the BBC’s new talent hotlist. Many of the talents were in attendance, as well as senior execs from the BBC.
The 200 emerging new talents have been identified by creative leaders from across the BBC as possible broadcasting stars of the future.
Tony Hall, BBC Director-General, said: “Finding and supporting the next generation of new talent – both on and off screen – is a vital part of the BBC’s remit. It is through backing new thinking, new perspectives, and taking creative risks that the BBC will not only better reflect the diversity of the country – but deliver even better, more engaging and relevant programming. I see this as central to our mission as a public service broadcaster.”
