Maddy Darrall trained as a radio news journalist and took a work placement at the BBC to work on children’s show Newsround. This was the catalyst for Maddy’s career in children’s television and Billy Macqueen gave her a break as researcher on ITV’s children’s show Ghost Train.[1] She has worked with Macqueen for much of the subsequent 25 years. During their time at the Walt Disney Company, Maddy created GMTV’s Diggit and CiTV’s animation & art show Draw Your Own Toons. She also spearheaded the creative development of websites for the pan-European children's TV brand Disney Club. Since 2000, Maddy’s key role at Darrall Macqueen has been to create and produce a rosta of new shows for both pre-school children and 6-11’s.[2]

Maddy lives in west London with her cameraman husband Simon Reay and their two young sons Ralph and Ned.
