Nevision hires BBC alum Morrison for factual

UK indie Nevision has hired former BBC commissioner Anne Morrison as creative director of factual programmes.

Morrison is joining the London-based firm in the newly created position and will also join its board of directors.

Her remit will be to broaden Nevision’s slate of factual programming, working on original ideas for the UK and international markets. She previously executive produced feature documentary Manolo: The Boy Who Made Shoes for Lizards for the company.

The factual slate will sit alongside Nevision’s existing production activity across scripted and children’s programming, headed by Neil Zeiger and Nigel Pickard respectively.

The company is coproducing drama series Oil with Lionsgate and has a slate of children’s properties including the Bafta-nominated preschool series Floogals.

Morrison worked in senior management for more than 20 years at the BBC. As controller of documentaries and contemporary factual, she was behind programmes such as Dunkirk, The Secret Policeman, The Queen’s Golden Jubilee, One Life, What Not To Wear and Top Gear.

On leaving the BBC she was chair of Bafta from 2014 to 2016 – only the second woman to be elected to the position in its 70-year history.

James Cabourne, executive chairman at Nevision, said: “A key aim for Nevision is to build our portfolio of high-quality original series across all genres. Having established our position in scripted and children’s over the last few years, the natural next step is for us to expand further into factual, consolidating our position as a multi-faceted independent production company.”
