London-based indie Keo Films has appointed a new head of development from fellow prodco Twenty Twenty.
Colleen Flynn will work alongside head of documentaries Katie Buchanan and Will Anderson and head of features Paula Trafford on factual entertainment projects. She will report to Keo’s creative director Andrew Palmer.
Flynn was previously head of factual and entertainment development at Shed Media-owned Twenty Twenty where she worked on Channel 4 series The Hoarder Next Door and My Transsexual Summer.
Prior to that she worked at Maverick, Optomen and Jamie Oliver’s Fresh One.
The news comes as Keo starts work on several new commissions for UK terrestrial broadcasters. BBC1 has ordered Victoria Wood: The Great British Cuppa (2x60′), which will focus on the history of tea in the UK and abroad.
Channel 4 has greenlit two observational documentaries, The Estate and Hillbilly Holidays, as well as Mediterranean Feasts (4x60′), a food show for its diginet More4.
Keo is targeting international growth for its production business under new MD Debbie Manners, who took up the role in March.
