Lawson is joining the Remarkable team as creative director with responsibility for the company’s entertainment and factual slate. She reports into joint managing directors James Fox and Kitty Walshe.

Prior to Glitterbox, Lawson served as head of entertainment at Twofour where she executive produced a range of entertainment programming, including This Time Next Year and The Jump.

Elsewhere, Richard Hague and Tamara Gilder, currently head of entertainment and executive producer, respectively, are being elevated to creative directors. The duo will work alongside Lawson to manage returning entertainment series and bringing new titles to the company’s entertainment slate.

Remarkable creative director Dom Waugh, meanwhile, has been promoted to the role of director of content. With the new title, he will be responsible for overseeing new entertainment and fact-ent formats for the UK and the international marketplace while also fostering the indie’s SVOD strategy and slate.

Remarkable’s current factual slate includes All Together Now, House of Games, Animal Park, and Your Home Made Perfect, the upcoming VR interior make-over series for BBC2 .

“We are heading towards one of our busiest years yet with bumper orders of established titles, new commissions and several exciting developments on the horizon,” said Remarkable’s Fox in a statement.” In Dom, Cat, Richard and Tamara, we now have a line-up of outstanding creatives and producers at the top of their game so I’m incredibly excited about what we can deliver both domestically and internationally in 2019.”
