Manchester-based factual and entertainment indie Title Role Productions has named former ITV Productions and BBC executive Paul Darling (pictured) as its head of development, in addition to a recommission for its popular series Crimes that Shook Britain.

Darling comes to Title Role in a move by the prodco to expand its factual entertainment formats and features department. His previous credits include head of development for entertainment for ITV Productions; development executive and senior development producer for the BBC; and various roles at Lion Eyes TVĀ  in Manchester and RTE in Ireland.

Darling said of Title Role: “It’s an intelligent company with an impressive back catalog of well-made shows with genuine substance. I look forward to working with them to develop more smart, content-rich shows.”

Crime & Investigation Network and the History Channel have also recommissioned Title Role to produce the third season of Crimes that Shook Britain. The six-part hour series will include high profile crimes, including the Crossbow Cannibal, the Omagh Bombing and Victoria Climbie.
