Adam Knopf

Queer Youth

Having moved to the UK from Zimbabwe as a teenager, Adam Knopf graduated from Cardiff University with a degree in journalism and knew that what he wanted was to pursue a career in TV drama.  A lucky break following work experience led to a series of jobs in production in and around Cardiff and Bristol including ‘Doctor Who’ (BBC) and ‘Broadchurch’ (ITV). In order to make the jump to the next level, he took a series of jobs in London including his first line producing role on ‘Marcella’ (ITV) supported by the ScreenSkills ‘Make-A-Move’ scheme.   

Adam joined Urban Myth Films as Head of Production in November 2018 just as the first series of ‘War of the Worlds’ went into production. Since then, he has produced on ‘The One’ (Netflix) and the second and third series of ‘War of the Worlds’ (Canal+/Fox) and ‘The Lazaraus Project’ (Sky) for the company.  In 2022 he produced the second series of ‘The Pact’ for Cardiff based Little Door Productions and is now working on ‘Lost Boys and Fairies’ (BBC).
