Red Arrow Studios International has appointed former Sky Vision executive Niki Page to the newly created role of factual VP.

Based in the company’s London office, Page (pictured) will manage non-scripted acquisitions outside of North America, working with both third-party and in-house producers. She reports to Alex Fraser, EVP of acquisitions and content investment.

At Sky Vision, Page worked for six years as head of factual and factual entertainment acquisitions. During her tenure, she brokered a first look with deal with Escape to the Chateau producer Spark Media Partners and acquired all Levison Wood’s series, including Walking The Nile and Walking the Himalayas.

She also worked closely with Sky-owned production companies including Blast Films and Love Productions.

Page previously held positions at Fremantle International where she worked across celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s content and in-house produced series, including Grand Designs and Escape to the Country. She also worked at Channel 4 International, where she most notably acquired Don’t Tell the Bride from Renegade Pictures.

“Niki has excellent relationships with key independent producers and rights holders and an impressive track record in acquiring high-profile, globally successful non-scripted content. Having worked with Niki before, I know this experience, combined with her pro-active and creative approach, will make her an invaluable asset as we continue expanding our engaging factual offering around the world,” Fraser said in a statement.
