BBC Worldwide Productions has upped VP of unscripted Carol Turner (pictured, left) and VP of production Debby Reid Vigna (right) to senior VPs of unscripted production.

In her new position, Turner will continue to manage unscripted shows for BBC Worldwide Productions and BBC-owned indie Adjacent Productions that are currently in development and production.

The portfolio of titles the exec oversees includes Ladies of London (Bravo), Breaking Pointe (CW) and the forthcoming Mud, Sweat and Gears (BBC America). Turner has served as VP of unscripted production since 2010. Previously, she served as an executive in charge of production at the company.

Meanwhile, Reid Vigna – who shares the senior VP role with Turner – will also oversee unscripted shows currently in production and development for both labels. The exec’s credits include Dancing with the Stars (ABC), Top Gear (History) and Life Below Zero (National Geographic Channel).

Prior to joining BBC Worldwide Productions as VP of production in 2010, Reid Vigna worked as senior VP of production at GRB Entertainment for 14 years, where she oversaw such titles as Intervention (A&E), Next Action Star (NBC) and Movie Magic (Discovery).

“Carol and Debby have been hard-working, extraordinary team members for years and completely deserve this advancement after their success with so many of our unscripted programs,” said Jane Tranter, head of BBC Worldwide Productions and Adjacent Productions, in a statement.
