She set up Big Talk in 1995, after running the U.K. production company The Comic Strip for several years. She has since produced comedies, dramas, and documentaries. Her notable projects include three series of the television comedy Black Books, which brought her two BAFTA Awards, among other honors; and (in her third collaboration with Working Title) Ringan Ledwidge's Gone, with Amelia Warner, Shaun Evans, and Scott Mechlowicz, which was recently released in the U.K.
In her previous collaborations with Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, she produced both series of the BAFTA, Montreux, British Comedy and International Emmy Award-nominated television comedy Spaced; and the award-winning sleeper hit movie Shaun of the Dead. The latter earned Ms. Park two BAFTA Award nominations; the Alexander Korda Award for the Outstanding British Film of the Year, and the Carl Foreman Award for the Most Promising Newcomer of the Year. Among other accolades, Shaun of the Dead won the British Independent Film Award for Best Screenplay.
