Hilary Susan Bevan Jones (born 18 October 1952; sometimes credited as Hilary Bevan-Jones) is a British television producer, who has worked on several acclaimed drama programmes, including the multi-award-winning State of Play (2003). She did not enter the television industry until the age of twenty-seven in 1979, when she gained a job as an assistant floor manager at BBC Television Centremarker. Previously, she had worked as a teacher in Essex, after having failed in several attempts to gain work in the theatre.

During the 1980s she worked predominantly on comedy programmes such as Not the Nine O'Clock News and Blackadder, becoming a producer in 1988, working in that capacity on Red Dwarf. In the 1990s she switched to working on drama programming and also left the BBC. She produced Cracker for Granada Television, upon which she first worked with the writer Paul Abbott, who went on to write State of Play, which she produced in 2003.

State of Play was co-produced by Endor Productions, a company Bevan Jones had co-founded in 1994, but after working on the series with Abbott the pair of them established their own new production company, Tightrope Pictures. Tightrope has produced several dramas for the BBC, including the Richard Curtis piece The Girl in the Café, which Bevan Jones produced herself.

Her grandfather was the World War I author E. H. Jones.
