BBC Three has appointed Nasfim Haque to become head of content at youth-skewing BBC Three, leading the network’s day-to-day commissioning and editorial output.
Haque has been interim channel editor of BBC Three since February 2022 and will now oversee the team permanently, with a remit across drama, comedy, entertainment, documentaries, news, film and sport.
She reports into Fiona Campbell, controller of youth Audience for BBC iPlayer & BBC Three, which returned as a linear network in 2021.
Prior to her interim role, Haque was commissioning editor in factual entertainment for the BBC, where she worked on shows such as Meet The Khans and James Arthur: Out of Our Minds.
She also ordered Tan France: Beauty And The Bleach for BBC Two and the forthcoming Scarlett’s Driving School for BBC One, having previously worked at production companies including Two Four, Century Films and Love Productions.
BBC Three’s slate includes music competition series Project Icon, reality entertainment series Charlotte In Sunderland and a full series of Dreaming Whilst Black.
Haque said: “BBC Three plays a key role in bringing the next generation of audiences to the BBC so I feel privileged to be working on a channel I love and to be tasked with ensuring our content continues to reflect younger viewers all across the UK. I genuinely can’t wait to get stuck in.”
