David Arrowsmith

David Arrowsmith has worked in factual television for over 20 years, developing unscripted ideas for companies such as October Films, DSP, Oxford Scientific Films (OSF), ITN, Nine Lives, Channel 5, Granada Television, and the BBC. Most recently he was the Director of Development at leading UK production company Zig Zag Productions. A passionate storyteller, he is particularly interested in history, as evidenced by just some of his key documentary commissions including ‘1966: Who Stole the World Cup?’, ‘Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty’, ‘Britain’s Bloody Crown’, ‘Witch Hunt: A Century of Murder’, ‘Cleopatra: Mother, Mistress, Murderer, Queen’, ‘8 Days That Made Rome’, and ‘Adolf & Eva: Love & War’. He was also involved in the development of the award-winning, Nobel Peace Prize-nominated documentary ‘Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields’.


David was born and raised in London and is proudly half-Colombian. He has an MA in Script Writing and a BA in English Literature. He lives in Hove.


In 2023 he took a break from television to write his first narrative non-fiction book – Narcoball: Love, Death and Football in Escobar’s Colombia (Cassell, June 2024). He is currently working on new book projects in both fiction and non-fiction.
