The Crown producer Left Bank Pictures has named Sian McWilliams as its creative director.
McWilliams, who is currently executive producer on shows including Without Sin for ITVX and The F*ck It Bucket for Netflix, will take up her new role from 1 January and oversee the whole slate of Left Bank.
Her remit includes development of new projects, finding talent and striking partnerships, as well as extending bonds with broadcasters and streamers.
Left Bank’s former creative director, Suzanne Mackie, left in late 2020 to set up her own produciton firm, Orchid Pictures.
Andy Harries, Left Bank’s CEO, said: “Sian embodies all the essential qualities of a first class creative leader. She has great energy, great ideas, she’s proactive, very smart, and hailing from Manchester also has a keen sense of humour.”
