Former Red Sky Productions exec Rosy Marshall-McCrae is joining the Glasgow-based content business STV Productions as its first head of factual development.

According to a release from STV Productions, the new position has been created “to support STV Productions’ ambitious plans for domestic and international growth by building on its strengths across specialist factual and documentaries.”

Marshall-McCrae comes to STV from Red Sky Productions where she was head of development. While at her post, she secured BBC commissions including the daytime series Island Medics. 

Prior to this, she worked as an edit producer on two seasons of Prison: First and Last 24 Hours, produced by STV Productions for Sky One, and on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas from Raise The Roof Productions for Channel 4.

She has also developed, produced and directed a range of programs including Skint, Strippers, Location, Location, Location and One Born Every Minute, all for Channel 4; Bangkok Airport for BBC3; and Wedding Disaster Specials for Channel 5.

Marshall-McCrae began her career in news and current affairs at BBC Wales. She then moved to London to join Firecracker Films before moving to Scotland to work on such documentaries as Terry Pratchett: Facing Extinction for BBC2.

STV Productions most recently tapped Jim Regan to the newly-created role of head of daytime and popular factual to help support the company’s expansion both domestically and abroad.
