Hasbro-owned producer and distributor eOne has hired the director or production at Fremantle banner Naked to oversee production across its UK non-scripted business.
Susanne Hamilton joins eOne as senior VP of productions and operations and will also have oversight of shows from Leeds-based subsidiary Daisybeck Studios, maker of series including The Yorkshire Vet.
Prior to her time at Naked, Hamilton was director at London’s Wellington Production Services for five years. She also worked for UK prodcos Boundless, also owned by Fremantle, Maverick, Maroon, Tiger Aspect and Wall To Wall after beginning her career as a production manager at the BBC.
Hamilton will report to Daisybeck MD Paul Stead and co-executive VPs of unscripted TV in the UK Matt Pritchard and Matt Walton. The appointment follows news earlier this month that Naked had hired former Vice exec Tamara Howe as director of commercial and operations.
In addition, eOne has promoted Rachael Parker to VP of unscripted television for the UK.
In her new role, Parker will continue to oversee the growth of the globally successful Ex On The Beach franchise, which she executive produced in her last job as head of unscripted at eOne’s company Whizz Kid Productions.
