After two award-winning decades at the CBC, where she held senior producer positions in both radio and television, Palmer left in 2000 to series produce for American broadcasters TLC and the Discovery Channel. As an independent, she has a wealth of writing, directing and producing credits to her name – from the pilot for The Food Network’s Glutton for Punishment to Border Security for Shaw Media’s National Geographic TV. She and Sue Ridout worked together on the Life/Oxygen series Making It Big, and Maureen was co-writer and story editor on Dreamfilm’s The Downside of High. In 2002, Maureen formed Bountiful Films with business partner Helen Slinger. Currently Maureen produces, writes and directs critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing documentaries; her directing credits include How To Divorce & Not Wreck the Kids, Cat Crazed, Sext Up Kids, Angry Kids & Stressed Out Parents (all for CBC Television’s Doc Zone) and Wasted, which airs on CBC Television’s The Nature of Things in early 2016.
