Kim Tserkezie

CEO Scattered Pictures / Actor / Writer / Exec Producer at Scattered Pictures

Entertainment

Kim Tserkezie has worked as an Actor, Presenter, Writer and Producer for twenty-five years, with a career spanning comedy, drama and documentary.

Kim got her first TV break as a presenter for BBC’s Disability Today and From The Edge. From 2002-2005, Kim played Penny Pocket in four series and two arena tours of BAFTA award winning, Balamory.

In 2020, she won a Royal Television Society Award for best drama performance for her leading role in short film, Obsession (BFI Network). Other acting credits include Boy Meets Girl (BBC Two), Wolfblood, (CBBC), feature film, Bliss, and Lodger, a TV comedy pilot she co-wrote and performed live at BBC Salford Sitcom Showcase, as well as numerous theatre roles.

Kim set up production company, Scattered Pictures in 2011. The company, based in Kim’s home city of Newcastle, develops productions which focus on underrepresented talent. Kim believes meaningful inclusion will happen when fair representation exists throughout the whole creative and production process on and off screen, from training and writing to directing, right through to commissioning.

Scattered Pictures has developed TV comedy and drama in collaboration with BBC Studios, Talkback Fremantle, Tiger Aspect Productions, Seven Seas Films and IMG and has had two developments commissioned by BFI Young Audiences Content Fund. Scattered Pictures also had four radio documentary commissions for BBC World Service, all well received across the globe and chosen as Pick of the Week by the Observer and The Times. These include Hidden Sport, a four-part series, presented by Kim and co-produced by IMG.

With Scattered Pictures, Kim has received drama and comedy writing commissions from BBC Comedy, Netflix, BBC Film, ITV and Channel 4. She is currently co-writing and exec producing two feature films in collaboration with Ardimages UK.

Kim won a John Brabourne Award in 2016. She has been a full BAFTA member since 2014 and was Deputy Chair of BFI’s Disability Screen Advisory Group. She has chaired industry events for RTS, BFI (including at London Film Festival) and for Netflix. Kim is a trustee of leading development agency for writing and reading, New Writing North.

“Disability Power 2023 is so important in highlighting and celebrating the huge and varied contributions disabled people make to a world which so often overlooks our skills and talents, and even existence. Thank you for making me feel seen. I’m so grateful to be included in the Top 100 with such incredible people.”
