Nevision has tapped former BBC executive Anne Morrison to spearhead the London-based indie’s expansion into factual production.
As creative director of factual programs, Morrison’s (pictured) remit will be to broaden the prodco’s slate, working on original ideas for the UK and international markets.
A number of factual features and series projects are currently in development under her purview.
“Having established our position in scripted and children’s over the last few years, the natural next step is for us to expand further into factual, consolidating our position as a multi-faceted independent production company,” James Cabourne, executive chairman at Nevision, said in a statement.
Morrison previously worked in senior management for more than two decades at the BBC. As controller of documentaries and contemporary factual, she was responsible for programs such as Dunkirk, The Secret Policeman, The Queen’s Golden Jubilee, One Life, What Not to Wear and Top Gear.
Following that, she became chair of BAFTA from 2014 to 2016.
Morrison is now chair of Pearson College London and a board director of Women in Film and Television, and a trustee for both the Charleston Trust and the Watersprite International Student Film Festival.
The media executive is also a patron of Medical Aid Films and a member of the Communication and Engagement Committee for the British Academy. She also sits on the Editorial Review Board for Top Gear magazine.
As part of her new role, Morrison will sit on the Nevision board.
