Kudos Hires Development Executive


Left Bank Pictures alum Jemima Jennings has been appointed to a newly created development executive post at Banijay UK’s Kudos.

Jennings will be tasked with developing the next big, scripted ideas for the production company, which is behind series such as Steven Knight’s SAS Rogue Heroes, the currently in-production project from Knight, This Town, as well as Grantchester, Code 404, Responsible Child, Deadwater Fell and the upcoming Then You Run.

Jennings joined Left Bank Pictures in 2015 as a runner before joining season two of The Crown, working as director’s assistant to Philip Martin and Philippa Lowthorpe. She moved into Left Bank’s development team, working across their extensive slate.

Karen Wilson, joint managing director of Kudos, said: “Jemima is a brilliant addition to the Kudos development team. She’s a hugely talented drama creative and is brimming with energy and ideas. We’re very excited to have her on board.”

Jennings added: “I’ve long admired the incredible shows that Karen, Martin and the team at Kudos have made. As one of the U.K.’s leading scripted labels and the team behind some of the biggest shows on TV, it’s a very exciting time to be part of the team.”
