Endemol Shine Group-owned production outfit DSP has appointed former BBC exec Donna Clark as joint managing director alongside existing MD Emily Dalton.

In the new role, Clark is to support and expand the breadth of the London-based indie’s factual output, as well as its reach across a range of platforms and audiences when she joins the company in March.

As acting head of formats and features commissioning at the BBC, Clark has commissioned such successful series as Full Steam Ahead, The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes, Back In Time for Brixton and Further Back In Time, all for the BBC2; and Eat Well For Less? for BBC1.

Clark has previously served as director of factual at Lion TV. Her production credits here included BBC3′s Young Soldiers, BBC1′s Transplant, BBC2′s Kew On A Plate, BBC3′s Drinking with the Girls and Channel 4′s The WI Lady’s Guide to Brothels 

“At DSP we play across the widest range of factual genres, from pure drama to live events and lots in between – but all our ideas are about scale, innovation and great content,” said Dalton in a statement. “Donna’s track record in clever, original popular factual and formats makes her the perfect fit to help DSP grow into new areas.”
