UK pubcaster Channel 4 has bolstered its factual commissioning team with the addition of Alisa Pomeroy as documentaries commissioning editor.

Pomeroy – who will be reporting to C4′s head of documentaries Nick Mirsky - has directed a number of docs and also helmed the first three series of C4′s 24 Hours in Police Custody, for which she earned a BAFTA Best Director of Factual nomination.

Her additional credits include C4′s The Island with Bear Grylls, BBC’s The Apprentice and the BBC2 series The Armstrongs.

“Alisa is one of the most talented people working in the documentary industry at the moment, with experience across a range of top quality observational and formatted programs,” said Nick Mirsky in a statement. “Her films are characterized by a mixture of wit, intelligence and humanity and those are the core qualities we want to express in our documentaries output.”

Pomeroy is to start the position in September.
