In his new role, Aslett will work alongside James on the shingle’s non-scripted development slate while producing ambitious international entertainment projects.

Most recently, he served as the international lead for BBC history and business where he was charged with developing and pitching such copros as Royal Wives at War, How Hip Hop Conquered the World and British Pop Music – Hit Making by Numbers.

Prior to this, Aslett served as creative director of development for BBC Science where his executive production credits include Richard Hammond Builds a Planet, Pompeii: The Mystery of the Bodies Frozen in Time, Natural Wonders, History of Forensics and Michael Mosley: Parasites & the Wonderful World of Blood.

“Since our time at Impossible Pictures, [Aslett] has continued to develop and produce exceptional non-scripted content, he’s won or been nominated for numerous awards, including Emmys and BAFTAs, and he’s become a real expert on international coproductions – all of which will be very valuable in helping Screen Glue realize its ambitions,” said James in a statement.
