Gail Pinkerton has joined ITV Studios’ entertainment label Possessed as their new Head of Production. She takes up post this month and will be responsible for overseeing the company’s slate of productions. She will report directly to Possessed Managing Director Glenn Hugill.
Possessed, launched by Hugill last August, has a focus on entertainment programming and recently secured a broadcast pilot commission from ITV for brand new format Spotless, which will air on Saturday August 20th. Other titles on their slate include Pick Me and the recently launched Cash Trapped.
Pinkerton joins the company from Optomen Television where she also served as Head of Production. Prior to joining Optomen in 2003 she held production management roles at Cineflix, Uden Associates and ZKK. ““I am delighted to be joining Glenn and the Possessed team at such an exciting time. Glenn has an enviable reputation and the ambition for the company is clear, I can’t wait to be part of their continued success.”
“Possessed has had a banner opening year, both in the UK and abroad, and we are thrilled to have such a thriving, ratings-winning and award-nominated slate”, added Glenn Hugill. “It is a measure of the extraordinary growth in the company that we should already need a Head of Production with Gail’s unrivalled experience and reputation. She’s going to be very busy, as we have a big announcement coming up, you’ll hear all about that very soon.”
