Warner Bros. Names Development Head for Renegade


Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) in the U.K. has appointed Hannah Brownhill as director of development for Renegade Pictures, effective immediately.

Brownhill will work under Harry Lansdown, director of programs at Renegade Pictures, and Alex Cooke, the company’s CEO and founder.

Previously, Brownhill served as head of development at Boundless, where she secured a number of formats, including The Week the Landlords Moved In (BBC One), Secrets in My Family (W), An Hour to Save a Life (BBC Two) and World’s Toughest Jobs (BBC Three). Throughout her career, she has been involved in the development and production of such shows as Four Rooms (Channel 4), Great British Railway Journeys (BBC Two) and Would Like to Meet (BBC Two).

Brownhill remarked: “I am thrilled to be joining the Renegade team. I’m a big fan of their key formats and look forward to working with them to deliver clever, entertaining and insightful shows that immerse us in the dramas of real life.”

Lansdown added: “I’m delighted that Hannah is joining to help build our slate of factual series and formats. Her great strength is her intuitive understanding of the world around her, which she then translates into compelling television.”
