At Worldwide, Neillis worked with numerous factual and drama-producing indies and her appointment comes as Sky Vision, the distribution arm of News Corp.-backed pay TV platform BSkyB, seeks to add scripted programming to its catalogue.
Neillis will report to commercial director Connie Hodson. She said:“Angela’s appointment underlines our commitment to producers as we work towards making Sky Vision their first port of call for new, popular, distinct and relevant programming for a global audience.”
Neillis said: “I’m enormously excited to be joining the company at this time. It offers a great opportunity to collaborate both with producers who have worked with Sky and those who haven’t. Sky Vision will make a real difference to the global production community.”
