Hitmaker Ben Winston

One of the worlds most influential TV producers

Ben Winston is an eight-time Emmy Award winner, and a 24 time nominee. In 2019, he was the most Emmy nominated individual, with 8 nominations. Last year Variety named him in their list of top 20 unscripted producers in the World.  

He was only 23 years old, when he started his productioncompany Fulwell 73. Today he’s a producer, director and writer making viral hits, Tv, movies, documentaries, YouTube hits, music videos and commercials. With clients like David Beckham, Justin Bieber and One Direction.

He’s the man behind big viral hits like ‘Carpool Karaoke’ and ‘Drop the mic’. He became friends with the famous tv-host James Corden, when they were 18 years old and Ben took James from ridiculed in England to revered in America with ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’.

The viral hitmaker says: "I don’t think you can ever say, 'I want this to be a viral hit.' You say, 'I want to make this bit really funny.' With YouTube, there is no schedule, there is no lead-in, there is no timeslot. The best stuff rises to the top."

Last but not least Ben has also succeeded in persuading the ‘Friends’ group in doing a ‘The Friends reunion special’, which he is producing right now.
