STV ups Armspach to head up drama

STV Productions has promoted Claire Armspach to the newly created role of head of drama development.

The position has been created to enable the business to build on recent commissions in the genre.

Sarah Brown, head of drama at STV Productions added: “Claire’s fantastic writer relationships, impeccable taste and passion for TV drama is well known. So I’m delighted that she has agreed to take on this vital role driving development at such an exciting time for STV Drama.
