NEW YORK: Senior Producer Priscilla Parish is to become the head of drama at the BBC’s commercial production arm BBC Studios.
According to details Parish will take up the newly created role in November, joining from World Productions where she was an executive producer and head of development. Parish will report to Ralph Lee, the director of content at BBC Studios, overseeing a slate of shows that includes Doctor Who and Amazon’s Good Omens.
Reportedly, she takes on the position after the departure of head of scripted Nick Betts last year. Betts’ role has effectively been split in two, with Parish taking drama and Josh Cole joining from Sky to become head of comedy.
