Big Brother prodco Initial has appointed Fulwell 73’s director of development to a newly created development role.
Caroline Roseman becomes of creative director of development for the Banijay-owned company, reporting into MD Katy Manley.
Roseman will oversee Initial’s development team, generating and pitching entertainment and reality ideas for the UK and international clients, working with Manley, head of production & operations, Jody Collins.
She was most recently director of development and executive producer at Fulwell 73, where she oversaw all unscripted development in the UK and US, with credits on An Audience With Adele for ITV, Amazon Prime Video’s The One That Got Away and Encanto At The Hollywood Bowl for Disney+.
She previously was head of development for Entertainment One-owned Whizz Kid, where she worked on MTV’s Ex On The Beach and Lip Sync Battle for Channel 5 in the UK.
Initial’s slate includes The Singles’ Table for ITVBe, The Games for ITV and Beauty & The Geek for Discovery+, with ITV2’s revival of Big Brother in the works for later this year. The prodco is overseen by Natalka Znak, who was named CEO of Remarkable Entertainment, Initial and Znak in late 2021, with Claire O’Donohoe holding the chief creative officer role at the three companies.
