London-and Brighton-based indie Middlechild has tapped former Boundless exec Tony Dillamore as head of development.
In his new role, Dillamore is tasked with expanding the company’s slate of formats and factual entertainment.
Dillamore was previously acting head of development at Boundless –part of FremantleMedia UK–, where his credits include upcoming factual entertainment format The Recording Studio for BBC1. His production and development background includes work with The Apprentice for BBC1, as well as Supernanny and Food Unwrapped for Channel 4.
David Sumnall, managing director at Middlechild, said of Dillamore’s appointment: “I’m sure he’ll help take us to the next stage in Middlechild’s growth and ensure we have a strong and lasting presence in out-of-London production.”
Middlechild’s upcoming projects include Saving Britain’s Wildlife, a 10 x 60-episode series commission from Discovery Networks for its Quest Red channel which looks at British rescue teams protecting wildlife, and a second series of Jo Brand’s Cats & Kittens from Channel 5.
Middlechild took home C4′s Nations and Regions’ Alpha Fund earlier this year, which has helped build a regional development team located in its Brighton headquarters.
