MOPAR Studios Appoints Head of U.K. Operation


MOPAR Studios has tapped Sharon Remmer as creative director of drama and head of MOPAR UK.

Remmer will help strategize the growth of the company’s slate and strengthen its position within the global market as a leader of high-end drama. She will also run the company’s U.K. operation as it seeks to expand further into the English-language market.

Remmer brings over 30 years of production and development expertise working across U.K. domestic productions such as Bad Girls and Holby City, as well as global streamer hits such as The Man in the High Castle and Medici: Masters of Florence. Previously, she was a script editor for Yorkshire Television’s Heartbeat, head of development for Stephen Fry and Gina Carter’s Sprout Pictures, head of drama for Big Light Productions and creative director at Green Pavilion.

Recently, Remmer set up her own company, SR StoryWorks, to develop high-end drama with an emphasis on diversity and original voices.

William Diskay, COO of MOPAR Studios, said, “We are delighted to have Sharon as part of the MOPAR team. She brings her extensive experience of producing home-grown English-language drama as well as hands-on expertise of developing scripted series on a global scale for major SVOD players like Amazon and Netflix. I know that she will build on the foundations we have in place and will help to elevate and advance our growth plans, including our expansion into the U.K. market.”

Remmer added, “I am thrilled to be joining MOPAR Studios, who have already established themselves as a major player on a pan-European level and share a vision of bringing high-quality original drama to a global audience.”
