The Farm has made two senior appointments, with freelance editor Mark Wybourn and Encore head of production Harriet Dale set to join the company.

Dale, who has worked at Encore (formerly Deluxe 142) for the past seven years, will work with head of drama Portia Napier.

The Farm co-founder Nicky Sargent said: “Part of our push for Newman Street (the Farm’s new building, pictured) will involve a focus on drama, and Harriet and Portia will be an invincible team.”

Wybourn’s credits include Adele At The BBC and Harry And Paul’s Story Of The Twos.

Wybourn and Dale will both start their new roles in January.
