The Ink Factory, the London- and LA-based prodco behind hit drama The Night Manager, has hired three executives as part of an expansion in development and digital.

The indie has added three execs to its London team, led by Anna Higgs, a former Film4 innovation lead and creative director at digital channel business Nowness, who is joining as head of story worlds and marketing.

Higgs will work alongside head of development Emma Broughton and the rest of the Ink Factory team to support further growth of the company’s storytelling across all platforms. She will lead the digital strategy for film and TV projects and grow the company’s in-house digital team.

Sophie Johnston and Arielle Gottlieb, meanwhile, are both joining Broughton’s team as script executives, further boosting in-house development talent.

They are working on development focused on the library of The Night Manager’s author, John le Carré.

Gottlieb previously script-edited Hooten & The Lady for Red Planet Pictures and was a story producer for Nutopia.

Johnston has worked across the industry for some of the UK’s top drama and theatre companies. She began work as a script editor on The Bill before joining Kudos where she oversaw the scripts on Hustle and MI High before moving on to Silent Witness and Foyle’s War.

Stephen Cornwell and Simon Cornwell, co-CEOs of The Ink Factory, said “Anna, Sophie and Arielle joining our team reinforces our continued commitment to storytelling in film and television and beyond, and to deepening audience engagement by extending storytelling worlds into the digital domain.

“We are continuing to explore narrative in creative, boundary-pushing ways, and we are thrilled to be working with a collection of the best in the industry on developing our offering.
