Watson starts at DRG today after serving as sales manager for Pilot Film and Television Productions. In that role, he managed sales across broadcast and inflight, including series Empire Builders, Great Railway Journeys of Europe and Globe Trekker.

Before that he worked for A+E Networks in London as sales coordinator for the EMEA region. He will report to DRG’s commercial director, Adam Barth.

“With his mix of big-company experience and small-company entrepreneurial spirit – not to mention love of TV – Jack’s background makes him a perfect addition to the DRG team,” Barth said.

Watson added: “From its original commissions and breadth of producer clients to new commercial activities and interesting projects with parent company NENT Group, DRG remains one of the more interesting and dynamic business operating in the sector today.”

Olivia Morgan is also joining DRG, which is part of Nordic Entertainment Group, as sales and acquisitions coordinator.
