Spun Gold TV Expands with New Hires & Bristol Office


U.K.-based Spun Gold Television has bolstered its leadership team with new hires, including the appointment of Bridget Boseley as head of factual.

Jon Green joins Spun Gold TV as head of development. In addition, Juliet Rice was named head of the company’s new regional outpost, Spun Gold West, in Bristol. Boseley, Green and Rice join Matt Young, who was recently made head of factual entertainment.

Boseley was previously the director of programs at Outline Productions. There, she executive produced programs such as Great British Food Revival and The Big British Wildlife Revival. She has also worked at Optomen Television, BBC and ITV.

Green was previously a development executive at BBC Studios Entertainment Development, where he co-created shows that include Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders: Absolutely Champers. While working at BBC in-house factual entertainment, he helped devise commissions like The World According to Kids, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, Home Away from Home and Your Home in Their Hands.

Prior to stepping into her new role, Rice executive produced shows for Spun Gold. These include Paul O’Grady’s Hollywood, Secrets of The National Trust and Garden Rescue.

Spun Gold’s managing director, Daniela Neumann, said, “Spun Gold has seen a significant upturn in our business over the past year, with a rise in commissions from U.K. and U.S. broadcasters across a range of genres and the success of our entertainment formats internationally. Bridget and Juliet are outstanding program makers with great breadth and depth of experience in the TV industry, and Jon has a fantastic track record of creating successful returning formats. We are thrilled to have them all on board to lead their departments and help Spun Gold’s continued growth in both our London and new Bristol bases.”
