He has a background in acting in and directing plays notably appearing in, and directing, the musical version of The Point!.
Bennett runs his own production company, An Acquired Taste TV Corp, and has been making broadcast television for about 17 years. Its name reflects its aim to be an 'Acquired Taste' in that they have specialised in slightly edgy products and the notion of 'acquired content'.
