Twofour Group-owned producer Oxford Scientific Films (OSF) has named Emma Morgan (pictured) as its head of popular factual, in a push to move the company into broader factual programming.
Morgan – who previously served as creative director of Watershed TV – will focus on OSF’s returning series and specials in the factual space. Her appointment is intended to help the Secret Life of Dogs producer broaden its scope and move beyond its traditional specialist factual base into more documentaries and formatted shows.
Prior to her work at Watershed TV, Morgan served as director of development and executive producer at Mentorn Media, where her credits include The Fried Chicken Shop: Life in a Day (Channel 4), Hotel of Mum and Dad (BBC3) and Gregg’s: More Than Meats the Pie (Sky1).
Between 2003 and 2010, the exec was head of development and exec producer at Twofour Broadcast, where she helped develop My Hoarder Mum and Me with Jasmine Harman (BBC1) and Choccywoccydoodah (UKTV Food).
“Emma is a rising star and she joins us at an exciting time with the company firmly on a growth trajectory,” said Clare Birks, chief executive at OSF, in a statement. “She has a passion for factual programming and a great track record in developing exciting ideas across a range of channels.”
