Twofour, the indie prodco with offices in London and Plymouth, UK, has appointed Seb Curtis as director of development.
Curtis joins the creative team led by David Brindley and Dan Adamson and will report to Brindley. Under his new remit, Curtis will oversee development across the company’s slate of documentaries, factual entertainment and entertainment formats for both the UK terrestrials and global SVODs.
“The opportunity to work with David, Dan and some of the best program makers out there was too good to miss,” Curtis said in a statement. “Their vision for the company is incredibly exciting and I can’t wait to be part of it. There has never been a more exhilarating time to be a factual producer and I’m looking forward to building on Twofour’s amazing track record and being a part of their next chapter.”
Curtis has a long track record in development. He comes to Twofour from Twenty Twenty where he created and developed Save Our Squad, a recently-announced six part Disney+ format in which David Beckham mentors a failing East London grassroots youth football team.
Prior to Twenty Twenty, his career path led him to gigs at Boundless, Voltage and BBC Studios, where he has developed projects such as An Hour To Save Your Life (BBC2), Celebrity Painting Challenge (BBC1), Class of ’92 (Cinematic Release), and The Big Family Cooking Showdown (BBC2/Netflix).
The appointment completes the executive creative team which includes the recent appointment of Louise Hutchinson in entertainment, and Grace Reynolds in documentaries. Curtis starts his role in May.
