Born from a one-off event at which Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode opened up their 'film surgery' to prescribe movies to the audience, The Movie Doctors provides a film recommendation for any occasion, as well as dissecting the movies themselves.


To support publication, Simon and Mark performed their Movie Doctors show in twelve cities across the UK where they prescribed movies to audiences of 500+ at each event, selling over 2000 books

Jaz accompanied Mark and Simon on the tour, co-ordinating local broadcast and print interviews in each city. Social media was utilised to gather questions from the audience ahead of the event, two of which were then chosen to be 'examined' live on stage.

Jaz also ran the publicity campaign for the book, juggling both Simon and Mark's extremely busy schedules, and carefully coordinating publicity without conflicting with each author's existing broadcast contracts. Media interviews included BBC's The One Show, This Week, BBC Radio 2 Steve Wright, Shortlist and The Observer.
