Shearman Productions has recruited a new senior producer and a production manager as part of a move to expand beyond its existing focus on popular factual programming, writes Jason Deans.
Producer/director Alastair Laurence, whose credits include Carlton TV's ITV documentary The Second World War in Colour, has joined the Bristol-based indie as a senior producer. Gail Scott-Wilson, whose production manager credits include Vets in Practice, The Rugby Club and When Rover Met BMW, takes over as head of production.
