Green Door Pictures, the UK indie owned by Luther actor Idris Elba, has appointed former Shiver executive producer Miles Jarvis (pictured) as its head of non-scripted.

In the new posting, Jarvis will work to lead Green Door’s efforts across non-scripted when he joins the firm in September. He will work closely with Ana Garanito, who boarded the company as head of development from FremantleMedia International in May.

As executive producer for ITV Studios’ factual arm Shiver, Jarvis’ factual credits include ITV’s Gino’s Italian Escape, TLC’s Katie Price’s Pony Club, BBC’s United Nations Street, Travel Channel’s Stars in Their Cars, and Lifetime’s Dance Mums.

Prior to this, he served as an executive producer for Leopard Films, where he was responsible for exec producing such films and docuseries as BBC1′s Missing, Missing Live,  Car Booty, Found, Lifegivers and The Day the Immigrants Left; and ITV1′s Crash Scene Investigators and Evacuees Reunited.

Launched in 2014, Green Door’s factual portfolio includes the feature-length documentary Mandela, My Dad and Me, Discovery Channel’s automotive series Idris Elba No Limits, and the forthcoming documentary Cut From a Different Cloth, which is a copro with London-based Woodcut Media.

“Miles joining Green Door is another milestone for the growth in the company,” Elba said in a statement. “Our ambitions are aligned to encourage diversity of thought with our content and create platforms for underrepresented factual and entertainment makers.”
