Argonon-owned BriteSpark Films has bolstered its production and development teams with the appointments of David Tshulak (pictured, left) and Vics Wilson (right).

Tshulak has been named as head of development. Most recently, he served as senior development producer at ITN Productions where he was responsible for commissioning such series as Channel 5′s One Punch Killers. Previously, he held senior development roles at Renegade Pictures and ITV Studios-owned indie Shiver.

Wilson, meanwhile, joins the London-based prodco as a production executive.

Prior to Britespark, Wilson served as a production exec for Naked Attraction producer Studio Lambert, where her credits included Channel 4′s Tattoo Fixers; and Jamie Oliver-owned prodco Fresh One, where she oversaw BBC1′s Len and Ainsley’s Big Food Adventure.

Britespark was most recently commissioned to coproduce Hunting Nazi Treasure for History Canada and More 4 with Toronto-based Saloon Media, as well as a yet-to-be-announced project for a major UK broadcaster.

“David brings a fresh and imaginative take to the business of coming up with great ideas and getting shows greenlit. Vics is a renowned production executive with a proven track record of creating engaging content,” said BriteSpark Films’ creative director Nick Godwin in a statement. “With two new commissions for major channels in the pipeline, it feels like the right time for us to build the size and range of our slate both in the UK and America.”
