International TV production and distribution group Tinopolis has appointed Chris Brogden to the role of director of content.
Brogden (pictured) will work with Tinopolis’ prodcos in the UK and U.S. to develop production strategies for international markets, focusing on factual entertainment and entertainment programming.
The role will also include working with Tinopolis’ sales arm Passion Distribution to increase format acquisitions from third parties and promote deeper collaboration with the group’s U.S. companies.
He will report to Tinopolis CEO Arwel Rees and takes up the role this month.
Brogden previously served as CCO at Studio Ramsay for the last two years, and prior to that was creative director of entertainment at Tinopolis, where he was responsible for the development of entertainment formats across the portfolio.
Prior to that, he was an entertainment commissioner at Sky, where his credits included Wild Things, Coldplay: Ghost Stories and Relatively Clever, and executive produced such series as I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! for ITV, The Games for Channel 4, and Celebrity Big Brother for Endemol.
“We are delighted to welcome Chris back to the group,” said Rees in a statement. “He is a fantastic collaborator and has an impressive track record of creating successful factual entertainment programming both in the UK and the U.S. Chris will be instrumental in further building on our strengths to make the most of opportunities internationally and in the UK.”
