Transatlantic indie Cineflix is expanding its UK operations, and has appointed former TalkbackThames exec Camilla Lewis (pictured) as MD of Cineflix Productions UK.
Lewis will join the producer’s senior management team in September, working alongside global creative director Rob Carey and reporting to Cineflix CEO of programming Simon Lloyd.
She will be tasked with increasing prime-time factual and factual entertainment commissions from all the UK’s major channels.
Lewis was formerly head of factual features at TalkbackThames, where she oversaw the producer’s factual brands including some of the UK’s highest-rating formats, such as Grand Designs, Property Ladder, How Clean is Your House?, Great British Railway Journeys and Four Rooms. She joined Talkback in 2005.
Lloyd said: “Camilla is an exceptional television executive with a strong creative vision, an eye for brilliant ideas and an infectious personality.”
Lewis added: “Out of all the independent producers based in the UK, Cineflix was the ideal choice for a new challenge – it is ambitious, has grown continuously and has a strong and creative international team which has been responsible for some great successes in a short time.”
