David Flynn, formerly the joint managing director of Endemol-owned Remarkable Television, is stepping into the role of chief creative officer of Endemol UK.

Flynn,  who has served in his most recent role with Remarkable since 2009 and also co-chairs the UK Digital Board, will be responsible for the creativity across all of the UK group.

He was also responsible for creating and executive producing The Million Pound Drop Live for Channel 4 and Pointless for BBC1.

Replacing Flynn in the shuffle is Nick Mather, formerly Endemol UK’s controller of entertainment and formats, as he becomes the joint managing director of Remarkable alongside Colette Foster.

Mather has been with Endemol UK since 2005, and served as deputy creative director and developed and produced 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show, The Kids Are All Right and The Whole 19 Yards.

Mather and Flynn’s appointments take immediate effect.

“David has developed and produced some of the most successful entertainment formats to come out of the UK,” said Lucas Church, chief executive officer of Endemol UK. “He and Nick represent the very best in the business and their appointment to these key roles keeps creativity at the heart of everything we do.”
