As Lime Pictures continues to grow its scripted output, the company has tapped Audible’s Rebecca Fenton as head of development and Alison Loose as production executive.
Prior to joining Lime, Fenton established and grew a portfolio of scripted audio drama productions for Amazon-owned Audible. Her award-winning commissions have included The Jungle Book, Murder on the Orient Express and Blood on Satan’s Claw and key commissioning partnerships included Agatha Christie Ltd and The Donmar Warehouse.
Loose returns to Lime as a production executive working across both the drama and kids departments. Most recently, she has been working in house at BBC Children’s looking after the development slate and managing co-producer relationships.
Louise Sutton, head of drama and YA, said: “I am absolutely thrilled that Rebecca and Alison have joined the team. Rebecca’s editorial expertise, strategic background and stuffed contact book make her the perfect fit for scripted head of development and Alison brings with her a wealth of production experience on some of the biggest shows on television. We have big ambitions for our slate both in the U.K. and internationally and together we will be a force to be reckoned with. I’m excited for the future at Lime with Rebecca and Alison by my side.”
Fenton commented: “I’m delighted to join Louise and the team at this ‘renaissance’ time for TV drama—an era where viewers demand innovation, quality and diversity of voice in their programming and expect consistently high standards in production. The team is perfectly positioned to develop and deliver great programs, bringing their wide range of contacts and expertise to Lime’s constantly evolving prime-time and young adult drama development slate.”
Loose added: “I’m hugely excited to join Lime, a truly successful regional production company with a global audience, during this period of growth, surrounded by a wealth of talent. I am looking forward to working with the creative communities in Liverpool, the northwest and beyond.”
