Amelia Brown is stepping down as MD of Fremantle-owned Britain’s Got Talent prodco Thames after 20 years to set up her own production company.

Brown will exit the UK firm in July and will work with Thames and Fremantle to ensure a smooth transition.

First joining the company in 2003 as a freelancer and then on a permanent basis in 2013, Brown was promoted to MD in 2017 and has served as a key creative on almost every series of Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor in series producer and executive producer roles. She also led the expansion of the label into the world of reality television and factual entertainment.

Thames is behind titles including Too Hot To Handle for Netflix; I Can See Your Voice, The Greatest Dancer  and Blankety Blank for BBC One; Eating with My Ex for BBC Three; Who Cares Wins for Channel 4; The Real Dirty Dancing for E4; and The X Factor, Britain’s Got TalentGame of Talents and Family Fortunes for ITV.

She leaves Thames with several new commissions underway, including MAMMA MIA! I Have a Dream for ITV and The Big Celebrity Detox for E4.

“After years of dreaming of setting up my own company, now is the time to make that leap and I want to thank every single person who has helped and supported me over the past twenty years. My time here has given me the experience and guidance to do what I’m doing next and for that, I am eternally grateful,” said Brown.
