Argonon Group-owned Remedy Productions has hired Suzanne Gilfillan (pictured) as its executive editor, responsible for developing entertainment and comedy formats.

This is the firm’s second appointment this week, after Tom Blakeson was named the prodco’s chief creative officer. Gilfillan, a former commissioning executive at the BBC, will report to Blakeson.

Alongside creative director Ted Hill, she will be responsible for developing entertainment and comedy formats for the prodco, which is known for music and cross-genre formats such as Freshly Squeezed and The NME Awards.

With Gilfillan’s appointment, Remedy is looking to develop and expand its programming slate across the UK. She brings more than 20 years of experience at the BBC, including non-fiction comedy panel shows Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week, and was part of the team responsible for the launch of BBC3.

“Suzanne’s track record of delivering popular and talked about comedy and entertainment formats, aligned with her passion for the genres, will help us significantly as we look to develop and expand our slate of programs,” said joint-MD of Remedy Productions, Juliet Borges.
