"17 nationalities, 14 languages, 7 religions, 5 sexes and 3 diets, and I am in charge, white and the only English person. There’s a lot to learn." Jonathan Glazier.
There has been no greater a creative challenge to Jonathan's 40-year career in making TV shows than the last 3 years of Asia’s Got Talent. An incredibly successful version of the ‘Got Talent” franchise, airing in 26 Asian countries.
Dealing with awful, culturally insensitive gaffes, and with those who lose on the talent show - in a culture where losing face is a major issue - has proved demanding.
In his career, he has directed the Royal Variety Performance, dealt with Cher, sorted out Gladiators, and, as head of BBC Entertainment, dealt with presenters creating a "diplomatic incident" with Wales.
Jonathan Glazier is the Executive Producer and Director of Asia’s Got Talent. It’s the most watched version of the worldwide franchise and the production team are regarded as one of the best across the world.
