Dundon will continue to oversee all scripted programming for Fremantle International and widens her remit to the development of new funding models plus the expansion of the company’s creative connections.

Fremantle has been ramping up its investment in drama over recent years, with series including The Responder, Italian dystopian drama Anna, German coming-of-age series We Children Of Bahnhof Zoo and South African crime drama Reyka. The firm also backed recently launched production creative alliance, The Creatives.

Jens Richter, CEO at Fremantle International, said: “Rebecca’s expertise in deal making and development has helped elevate our business to deliver a number of exceptional projects over the past few years and the addition of Jill to the team will ensure that we continue to deliver exceptional programming to the market.”
