In her new post, De Moraes will be responsible for driving The Chopping Block producer’s fact-ent slate in the UK and abroad. She will report to chief creative officer Andrew Mackenzie when she boards the company in February.

De Moraes most recently served as creative director for development central at UK pubcaster BBC, where she was charged with enhancing collaborations across all genres and developing series across all non-scripted genres, including Tomorrow’s Food for BBC1.
