The annual Radio Times power list seeks to name the most influential people behind the scenes of Television.

Earlier this year, Phoebe took home four Emmy Awards for his outstanding works in Television. The BBC's Director of Content, Charlotte Moore had a lot of praise for Phoebe in her statement.

Fleabag won multiple awards during the Emmys. Phoebe herself won the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series award as well as the Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series Award. The series itself won the Best Comedy Series Award. While receiving her third award during the Emmys, all Phoebe did was laugh and say that this is just getting ridiculous. She added that when Fleabag started it was a one-woman show and that the journey had been absolutely mental to get to the current state of the show. 

Phoebe has been working as an Executive producer for the upcoming comedy-thriller show Run. She is also a co-writer for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die. The movie will once again star Daniel Craig in the iconic role and will be released on April 8, 2020.
