Transatlantic producer and financier Nevision has promoted its producer, Anne Morrison, to become CEO and creative director.
Morrison’s remit will be to focus on the future growth and strategic expansion of the company, working with both established and up-and-coming global talent.
She remains creative director of factual, having worked on shows such as The Missing Children, a co-production with True Vision for UK commercial broadcaster ITV in association with Topic in the US and Irish public broadcaster RTÉ.
Morrison will also work with Nevision’s creative director for kids, Nigel Pickard, and scripted counterpart, Neil Zeiger, on the company’s active development slate. She will also work closely with Nevision’s US operation Nevision Inc. and sister company Nevis Productions, based in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
Morrison said: “Since joining Nevision three years ago, I have seen the company flourish as a producer. We now have an impactful slate of well-crafted, character-driven stories across factual, factual entertainment, scripted and kids & family and I look forward to making content in partnership with leading broadcasters and platforms globally.”
James Cabourne, executive chairman of Nevision, added: “Anne’s track record speaks for itself – as both a broadcaster and producer, she has a reputation for seeking out and creating the highest quality award-winning programming.”
Morrison ran factual programming at the BBC before becoming chair of BAFTA, the second woman to be elected to the position in its history.
Nevision’s sate includes feature film Glenrothan and Goode Stuff, an animated series for kids aged 6-12, co-produced with leading Israeli production house Ananey.
