London-based feature film financer and distributor Embankment Films has bolstered its unscripted division with a quartet of appointments, including feature documentary producer Nick Taussig and factual TV series veteran Malcolm Neaum.

Taussig and Neaum are joining as producers and will be tasked with producing a variety of unscripted series formats including returnable series at Embankment Films, which has been behind features such as The Father, The Son & The Wife.

Taussig is a Bafta- and Grierson-nominated feature documentary producer and was behind titles such as McQueen, Audrey and Killing Escobar, while Neaum is a former head of development at Darlow Smithson whose credits include Discovery Channel’s I Shouldn’t Be Alive.

They are joined by head of production Sophie Harmer, who produced Call Me Kate and Charlie Mackesy: The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, The Horse & Me with Taussig recently, and head researcher Henry Farrington.

The appointments come after the company hired film producer Kevin Loader, whose credits include The Death of Stalin, The Personal History of David Copperfield and Roger Michel’s royal feature documentary Elizabeth.

Embankment founders Tim Haslam and Hugo Grumbar said in a joint statement: “Our mission is to enable audience-facing storytellers to produce surprising and emotive entertainment. The company now increases its offering to the market.”
