Menzies will lead and develop the UK- and US-based firm’s children’s factual brands and remain as executive producer of kids’ science series Operation Ouch! for CBBC.

With more than 20 years’ experience in production, Menzies previously spent 12 years at the BBC, including stints on iconic kids’ show Blue Peter and Serious Explorers.

She also spent two years in the BBC’s Specialist Factual and Science units, working on series such as Robert Winston’s A Child Against All Odds and Little Angels.

Simon Knight, CEO of Maverick TV, said: “Romily has been instrumental in turning the Ouch! brand into a global success in her 10 years with the series. Her deft touch in formats coupled with her deep understanding of younger audiences makes her the ideal choice to help Maverick realise its further ambitions in creating global programming for children.”

Menzies said: “To have the opportunity to develop more compelling factual formats for children, stay with my beloved Ouch! series and join an incredibly talented team at Maverick was completely irresistible. I am utterly delighted to have landed my dream job.”
