Carter takes up the newly created role of director of production for factual entertainment and events at BBCS Productions, where she will lead the production and business teams in developing, winning and producing commissions.

Carter will report to Hannah Wyatt, MD of factual entertainment and events at BBCS, and work across offices in London, Bristol, Cardiff and Belfast on shows including Top Gear, DIY SOS, Antiques Roadshow and Celebrity Paining Challenge. She will also work on the commercial strategy to grow business at BBCS, the commercial arm of the UK public broadcaster.

Carter joins from Tinopolis where she led the company’s factual group of companies as COO from a business, commercial and production perspective, having taken up the role in 2017.

She was previously director of production at Mentorn Media and Firecracker Films, with credits on shows such as An Idiot Abroad, Question Time, Traffic Cops, Hotel of Mum & Dad and Greggs: Baking for Britain.

Carter has nearly 20 years’ experience working for independent production companies and broadcasters and also held senior production roles at Endemol and Planet 24.

Wyatt said Carter’s “strong track record of ensuring programmes look fantastic on screen and deliver commercial value” meant she would be a “brilliant addition” for BBCS.

Carter added: “I’m hugely excited to be joining the award-winning BBC Studios factual entertainment and events production team and working with Hannah and the team to make outstanding content for a range for broadcasters and audiences.”

BBCS’s factual entertainment and events division recently announced its first ITV commission, Inside The Duchy (working title), produced by its unscripted productions team in Bristol.

BBCS launched as a wholly owned subsidiary in 2017 and competes for work with other UK and international broadcasters, as well as the BBC. Wyatt joined the company in the same year, from UK prodco Boundless.
