Former CTV exec Robert Hardy has joined Vancouver-based Force Four Entertainment as its new head of development.

Hardy most recently worked at Canadian indie Paperny, before which he managed western development for CTV, where he worked for a decade.

He joins Force Four after it produced the inaugural season of The Bachelor Canada for Citytv. “We have a long and productive creative relationship with Rob,” said executive producer John Richie, who is also a partner in Force Four along with Rob Bromley and Gillian Lowrey.

Hardy will work with Force Four director of development Nicole Lawson and development producer Tara-Lee Novak. His credits at CTV included Defying Gravity and the Force Four TV movie Playing for Keeps, also for Lifetime.
