From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charlie Parsons, born 7 August 1958 is a British television producer who created a number of notable television shows including Survivor. He also created The Big Breakfast and The Word.

He went to Pembroke College, Oxford where he studied English Literature and afterwards trained as a journalist. According to a review in 2000,

This nice middle-class schoolboy from Kent, who read English at Oxford, became - so his critics claim - the Titan of Tack TV. He's the bloke that gets the blame for everything that is bad about British television - yoof TV, decline in standards and dumbing-down. But to his admirers, Parsons is a creative genius; a co-founder of Planet 24 and the brain behind such television hits as The Word and The Big Breakfast.[1]

He has won several awards including an Emmy for US series Survivor in 2001. His life partner is Lord Waheed Alli, who is also his business partner. Their former company, Planet 24, was sold for several million pounds in 1999.
