Former National Geographic Television International programming and acquisitions manager Ceire Clarke is joining South African-based wildlife producer Earth Touch in the newly created position of head of acquisitions.
Clark will be responsible for driving Earth Touch’s expansion into third party representation, which kicked off last year with the acquisition of worldwide rights to Kim Wolhuter’s A Dog’s Life documentary.
Based in London, she will acquire factual specials and series with an emphasis on wildlife and environment, science, history and travel documentaries. She will report to Earth Touch’s director of programming and sales, Chris Fletcher.
Clark brings six years of acquisitions experience at NGTI to her new role.
“Ceire’s experience is perfect for spearheading the expansion of our third party slate,” said Fletcher. “Our focus is on the top end of the factual market, and we are seeking out programming which complements our in-house productions.”
