Charlotte Nicholls

Greenbird-backed UK prodco Flicker Productions has hired Charlotte Nicholls, head of development at Endemol Shine-owned Darlow Smithson Productions (DSP), to lead its specialist factual drive.

Nicholls is joining Flicker as head of specialist factual and will lead the company’s push into the genre in the UK and US.

Flicker is also promoting Chloe Symonds from development producer to head of development following recent commissions from Channel 4 for Kathy Burke All Woman and Channel 5 for Thai Airport 24/7.

Both will report to joint MDs Nick Underhill and Colleen Flynn.

Whilst at DSP, Nicholls’ commissioning highlights included Made In Great Britain for BBC2, Interior Design Masters for Netflix, The Trial of Lady Jane Grey for BBC4 and The Yorkshire Steam Railway for Channel 5.

Prior to that she spent four years at London-based indie Keo Films as head of development, where she developed specialist factual, documentaries and features such as the Bafat-winning Exodus, Skint, The Last Miners, The Ladykillers and Eden.

Flicker was set up by Flynn, former head of development at Keo, and Underhill, who was MD of the Fish Fight producer’s digital arm K2, in 2016.
