Expectation hires Sky exec for comedy

Peter Fincham and Tim Hincks’ UK prodco Expectation has appointed an executive producer from European satcaster Sky for scripted comedy projects.

Morwenna Gordon

Morwenna Gordon is joining the prodco to develop and produce scripted comedy content. She will work alongside creative director of comedy Nerys Evans on upcoming titles such as In My Skin for BBC3 and BBC Wales, plus Alma’s Not Normal (pilot) for BBC2.

Arriving in March, Gordon most recently spent four years as a commissioning editor at Sky. During her time at the satcaster, Gordon commissioned and exec produced original scripted comedies for Sky1, Sky Atlantic and Sky Arts, including Tim Minchin’s Upright, Frayed, Bounty Hunters and The Queen & I.

Evans said: “I’m delighted that Morwenna is joining us at Expectation. I’ve loved making Intelligence for her and Sky, and found her to be a really collaborative and creative commissioner. Morwenna’s got fantastic comedy instincts and she is so well respected in the industry. It’s a real coup to get her to join us and I can’t wait to see what shows we make together next.”

Gordon joined Sky in 2011, initially working as a senior producer on titles such as Game of Thrones and Trollied, before moving up the ranks to become development executive and eventually commissioning editor.

She previously spent 10 years at UK pubcaster the BBC, working in the digital department across entertainment.
