STV scans Red Sky for factual exec

STV Productions has appointed a former executive from fellow Scottish indie Red Sky Productions as head of factual development.

Rosy Marshall-McCrae

Rosy Marshall-McCrae, who was head of development at Red Sky, takes up the newly created position tasked with expanding STV’s domestic and international reach.

At Red Sky, Marshall-McCrae led a production team that secured commissions including daytime series Island Medics for pubcaster the BBC.

Prior to that she served as an edit producer, working on series such as STV Productions’ Prison: First & Last 24 Hours for Sky1 and Raise The Roof Productions’ Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas for Channel 4. She has also developed, produced and directed a range of programmes such as Location, Location, Location for Channel 4 and Wedding Disaster Specials for Channel 5.

Her appointment follows the commissioning of drama Elizabeth is Missing (1×90’) by the BBC and exclusive one-off documentary Britain’s Polar Bear Club (1×60’) for Channel 4.

The company hired Jim Regan recently as head of daytime and popular factual and promoted senior producer Nick Johns to the newly created role of head of entertainment development in February.

Last year, the Glasgow-based prodco brought in former ITV Studios and BBC drama producer Elaine Collins to boost its scripted slate and recently produced six-part BBC1 gameshow And They’re Off for the BBC’s Sport Relief charity special.
