Indie production company Sundog Pictures has named Jonas Crabtree (pictured) to the newly created role of head of development.

Crabtree was previously the head of factual development at Twenty Twenty Television for the past four years, where he developed and pitched doc series, including Channel 4′s Hilary Devey’s Dole Office and Bad Santas, and BBC2′s Reverse Missionaries.

The company, which launched last year, is currently at work on a ‘First Cut’ doc for Channel 4 on finding the perfect flat-share in London, and recently closed the online window for Breaking the Taboo, removing the title from YouTube. The hiring of Crabtree is part of the company’s expansion.

“Jonas’ factual pedigree speaks for itself,” said Sundog Pictures’ creative director Sam Anthony. “He has a curiosity for big stories told in a real and accessible way – with a dash of mischief – and is a great fit with the rest of the senior team. We have big and exciting ambitions for this year and hiring Jonas will be pivotal in achieving them.”
