UK pubcaster Channel 4 has fortified its specialist factual team with the addition of former Shine TV executive Nicola Brown as commissioning editor.

The British broadcaster said that her appointment would further bolster the factual commissioning team that is overseen by head of factual Danny Horan.

Brown exits Shine after having served as their head of documentaries since December 2017, where she was responsible for developing and expanding the indie’s factual output, fostering new ideas and pitching to major broadcasters.

Brown’s credits as an executive producer include some of the highest profile and highest rating factual series on Channel 4, including The Island with Bear Grylls, Hunted and Celebrity Hunted; and produced The Secret Life of 4, 5 & 6 Year Olds for RDF, as well as Educating Cardiff for UK indie TwoFour.

Further credits include The Sound of Musicals for Fresh One Productions and 24 Hours in A&E for The Garden Productions.

“Nicola’s impressive career of developing and delivering huge returnable series with proper content means she is the perfect addition and I hope shows our commitment to finding the next generation of big series that have impact, scale and ambition,” said Horan in a statement.
