Argonon Group-owned indie Remedy Productions has hired former Tellycopter exec Matt Tiffin (pictured) for the newly created role of head of entertainment.
When he boards the Fifteen to One outfit in July, Tiffin will be charged with leading Remedy’s entertainment team and overseeing and developing its entertainment production slate for the UK and global markets, as well as existing properties.
Tiffin specializes in creative development and entertainment production, and previously served as head of entertainment at NBCUniversal International Studios’ central creative unit Tellycopter. Prior to that, he was head of entertainment at NBCU International’s factual entertainment label, Chocolate Media.
He developed and series edited ITV’s The 21st Question and reformatted U.S. cable show Baggage into a primetime Channel 4 program. Before joining NBCUniversal International Studios, Tiffin held senior development positions at Eyeworks UK and BBC Worldwide, where his commissioning credits include Sky 1′s Obese: A Year to Save My Life, NBC’s Great American Road Trip, GSN’s How Much is Enough and BBC1′s Walk on the Wild Side.
Tiffin will work alongside creative director Ted Hill and head of factual entertainment Sophie Wurzer Williams. He will report to chief creative officer Tom Blakeson and MD Juliet Borges.
