Red Sauce was launched just over a year ago and is led by former producer and commissioning editor for BBC Factual Tom Edwards.

Edwards, creative director at Red Sauce, said: “I’ve been thrilled with the rapid growth of our label since we began just over a year ago. And we’re hoping to announce two more exciting commissions soon. So we are really pleased to be welcoming some of the brightest development and production talents to Red Sauce.

“Both Jess and Jack are fantastic ideas originators who’ll add even more to our team, whilst Nikki’s outstanding production management skills will be a fantastic addition to those of our talented PM team.”
