“At DSP we play across the widest range of factual genres, from pure drama to live events and lots in between – but all our ideas are about scale, innovation and great content,” said Dalton in a statement. “Donna’s track record in clever, original popular factual and formats makes her the perfect fit to help DSP grow into new areas.”
