Wildflame ignites factual with BBC alum

Wales-based Wildflame Productions has appointed a former BBC commissioning executive to lead factual production across the UK and internationally.

Nick Shearman

Nick Shearman has been hired as an exec producer and will oversee emerging talent and take the lead on delivering major factual titles for Wildflame, which is headed by CEO Paul Islwyn Thomas.

Shearman has been behind series such as The London Markets, Bruce Parry’s Arctic and Nature’s Microworlds, and has previously worked for UK prodcos including Tiger Aspect, RDF and Keo.

Thomas described Shearman as “an outstanding executive producer with commissioning experience at the highest level in the BBC and as a senior figure within the UK indie sector.”

Wildflame is part of the Flame Media network, which consists of Cardiff-based Wildflame and Flame Germany in Munich plus sales arm Flame Distribution, which has offices in London, Sydney and Singapore.

Shearman added: “The Flame Group’s international business strategy combined with their commitment to new talent means there is real scope for growth both within Wales and well beyond.”
