Voltage TV’s Becky Kent has joined UK-based producer Curious Films as head of development.
As co-head of development at Voltage TV, Kent (pictured) was involved in developing multiple shows including The British Tribe Next Door (Channel 4), The Great Plague (Channel 5) and What Are We Feeding Our Kids? (BBC1).
In her previous role as senior development producer at Seven Wonder, the executive was part of the team developing content including People’s History of the NHS (BBC4), Diabetes: The Fast Fix (ITV) and Hometown: A Killing (BBC3).
Curious Films also hired Mark Raeburn as finance and commercial officer. Raeburn joins alongside his current roles as CFO of Minnow Films and Renowned Films, following an eight-year stint as program finance head for Channel 4.
The company’s recent commissions include Reclaiming Amy (BBC2), Caroline Flack: Her Life & Death (Channel 4), The People vs Climate Change (BBC iPlayer) and Being Frank: The Frank Gardner Story (BBC2). Curious Films is also in production on a range of projects for broadcasters and international streamers, it stated in a release.
Dov Freedman, founder of Curious Films, said in a statement: “We’ve had a great year with high-profile commissions for UK networks and beyond and are now well placed to build on this with further growth. Mark’s breadth of experience will be instrumental as we scale up the business, and Becky has an enviable track record of developing successful series and one-offs and I think she’ll be instrumental in expanding the range and genres of our work.”
