Newly-formed London prodco Rogo Productions has named Howard Cohen and Natalie Hill as co-creative directors, heading up the indie’s growing in-house development and production team.
Hill (pictured right) is an award-winning producer with credits that include five series of The Apprentice for BBC1; Great British Menu for BBC2; and Stacey Dooley Investigates for BBC3.
She’s held roles at various UK indies including Mentorn Media, Lion, Maverick, Betty and Boundless – most recently serving as head of development and executive producer for Hello Halo, where two of the docs she developed and EP’d were shortlisted for Grierson awards.

Formed in 2020 as part of the AJH Films Media Group, Rogo Productions is an indie helmed by CEO and founder Alex Holder – the filmmaker behind the biographical documentary Keep Quiet, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to critical acclaim and won ‘Most Valuable Documentary’ at Berlin’s Cinema for Peace Awards.
“Rogo means ‘to question’ and it is that inquisitive drive that underpins everything we do within the company,” said Holder in a statement. “Nat and Howard bring with them that same creative curiosity, experience and energy that will allow Rogo to put that philosophy into practice. Having them heading up our growing creative team allows us to not only fast-track our current slate into production but also develop a rich mix of content across factual, entertainment and scripted comedy.”
