July 21, 2015

James Fox and Kitty Walshe have been named joint MDs of the Endemol Shine UK-owned Pointless producer, Remarkable Television.

The execs are to have overall responsibility for the prodco’s programming, and duties will include further expanding the company’s primetime roster, and creating and producing new, international-facing UK formats.

Fox and Walshe – who will begin their positions immediately – will report to Endemol Shine UK CEO Richard Johnston, and will also work closely with Susan King, the current head of production at Remarkable Television who has been promoted to director of production.

Fox, who had held the post of head of entertainment for the prodco in 2012, most recently served as creative director at the production hub, Remarkable Games, which focuses on multi-platform game show formats. Meanwhile, Fox’s executive producer credits include Pointless, Two Tribes and The Million Pound Drop. The exec is to continue with these duties alongside his work as joint MD.

Walshe – who previously worked as an executive producer for Remarkable Television from 2008 until 2014 – rejoins the company from UK indie Twofour where in January she became head of features and daytime. Her credits include the recent Channel 4 commission of Dr Know (working title). Walshe’s prior exec producing credits at Remarkable include Secret Eaters, Gok’s Fashion Fix and Supersize vs Superskinny.

Remarkable Television’s entertainment portfolio includes such game shows as Pointless (BBC1), Deal or No Deal (Channel 4), The Million Pound Drop (Channel 4) and Two Tribes (BBC2). Forthcoming features and factual entertainment series include new seasons of Bodyshockers (Channel 4) and The House that £100K Built (BBC2) and one-hour pilot, It’s Glam Up North (Channel 4).
