Arrow lands ex-Raw development exec

UK factual prodco Arrow Pictures has appointed a former Raw TV producer as a development executive.

Poppy Dixon

Poppy Dixon’s credits include Bafta-winning feature documentary The Imposter, hybrid doc and scripted movie American Animals and Harvey Weinstein documentary Untouchable.

In her new role, Dixon will help build on Arrow Pictures’ slate of feature documentaries, high-end docuseries and scripted content. Dixon was most recently a producer at fellow UK prodco Raw, where she also served as head of development, feature documentaries and specials.

Arrow Pictures was formed at the end of last year by a restructure of Arrow Media, the UK indie formed by former Darlow Smithson trio John Smithson, Tom Brisley and Iain Pelling.

Arrow Media and Arrow Pictures now reside under parent company Arrow International Media. Arrow Media focuses on returnable content, including long-running series, singles and specials, and is headed by Brisley as creative director.

Arrow Pictures builds on Smithson’s track record of award-winning, big-budget content, focusing on feature films, feature docs and high-end series and serials.

Smithson, creative director at Arrow Pictures, said: “We have had a huge amount of interest in our ideas since we launched in December, so we are delighted to have Poppy on board to help fuel our growth.

“With nearly 15 years’ experience of working in factual film and TV, in both the UK and New York, Poppy brings a strong production background, combined with intellectual rigour and storytelling flair. She has originated, developed and produced a wealth of programme ideas, with much domestic and international success. She is a great asset to our team.”

Dixon added: “John Smithson has one of the best creative visions in the industry and I am delighted to be working alongside him to grow the label’s output both in the UK and internationally. I’m looking forward to working closely with the best talent and the world’s leading platforms on these projects.”
