Grant joins the First Dates producer after five years overseeing Blast! Films’ US slate and originated shows for numerous broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic, including Gold Dirty Rotten Cleaners (A&E) and Gold Rush: Our Race to Olympic Glory (BBC).

His previous roles also include head of US development at NERD and US development executive at Maverick. He has more than 20 years’ experience with credits including Hamlet and Macbeth (PBS, BBC), Private Lives of Pompeii (A&E), Chef Race (BBC America) and Midnight Feast (FYI).

Grant joins Twenty Twenty with immediate effect, reporting to creative director James O’Reilly. The announcement follows the appointment of Ruth Kelly, who joined Twenty Twenty in July as director of programmes.

O’Reilly said: “Seb is a genuine creative with an outstanding track record in developing shows both in Britain and the US. I’m delighted he’s joining us at Twenty Twenty. His flair for development and in-depth knowledge of the international market will be invaluable assets as we continue to grow the company.”
