Harris

Founder, Neal Street Productions / Vice Chair, Television, BAFTA

Harris started 2020 on a high note with an Oscar nomination for best picture as one of the producers of Sam Mendes feature “1917,” an experience made bittersweet as she looks beyond the pandemic, wondering when a made-for-the-big-screen project like the World War I epic would again be able to play in packed theaters. On the upside, production on her series “Call the Midwife” and “Britannia” was able to resume after a six-month shutdown. She also saw progress as deputy chair of BAFTA, as the orgnization instituted more than 120 changes to its voting, awards and membership, all designed to give diverse voices an equal chance to have their contributions seen and cele­brated. Harris partners in Neal Street Productions with Mendes (a friend since their teens) and Caro Newling.
