Banijay UK-owned IWC Media has appointed former ITV director of factual Richard Klein (pictured) to the role of creative director.
Klein will work alongside managing director Hamish Barbour and the company’s Glasgow- and London-based production teams as IWC attempts to expand on its factual content output to broadcasters across the UK and beyond.
Klein first joined the commercial broadcaster in 2013, where he worked closely alongside controller of factual Jo Clinton-Davis to oversee all factual and daytime programming at the network. His commissioning credits while at ITV included When Ant and Dec Met the Prince, The Mafia with Trevor McDonald, 100-Year-Old Drivers, Rookies, and Sugar Free Farm.
Prior to ITV, the veteran programming executive served as controller of BBC4 between 2008 and 2013.
Its most recent commissions include A+E Networks’ Robbie Coltrane’s Critical Evidence, Travel Channel’s Robson Green’s Grand Slam Fishing, ITV’s Ellie Simmonds – Swimming with Dolphins and BBC2′s Boy George’s My Generation.
