Catherine Oldfield Promoted to Creative Director at Tall Story Pictures


Catherine Oldfield has been elevated to creative director at the ITV Studios drama label Tall Story Pictures.

Oldfield is a co-founder of Tall Story Pictures, alongside Francis Hopkinson. She will now lead the team following Hopkinson’s departure later this year. Oldfield is an executive producer of Tall Story’s forthcoming drama Trauma, and her other EP credits include Home Fires and Tutankhamun.

Julian Bellamy, the managing director of ITV Studios, said: “Francis leaves the business in fantastic shape with a great foundation to continue to grow. I’m delighted that the person leading this will be Catherine; her skill and experience can be seen across the breadth of Tall Story’s productions and development slate. I’m looking forward to watching the label continue to thrive under her expert direction.”

Oldfield added: “It’s a really exciting time for Tall Story right now and I am delighted to be taking it into the next stage of its evolution. I’ll of course miss working with Francis, but with filming for Trauma in full swing, it is very much business as usual. We are in a good place and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
