Synchronicity Films has appointed Deanne Cunningham (Endeavour, Cold Feet) as head of development in Glasgow to oversee its U.K. slate, along with taking on the role of executive producer across select series in production.
Prior to Synchronicity, Cunningham spent over a decade in various scripted roles, with producing credits on the hit dramas Endeavour and Cold Feet for ITV, as well as script editing positions on several shows, including Humans (C4/AMC), Utopia (C4) and The Tunnel (Sky Atlantic/Canal+). Cunningham will spearhead the development of a range of projects on Synchronicity’s slate, including playwright Joseph Wilde’s debut horror series Clyde Waters, which Synchronicity is in advanced development on with a U.K. broadcaster.
Claire Mundell, founder and creative director at Synchronicity Films, said: “Deanne is a talented, insightful and tenacious developer with a host of brilliant writer, commissioner and talent relationships. We are thrilled to have Deanne join us in this senior editorial role, as we move our slate forward with a host of compelling projects, including Joseph’s unsettling and completely original allegory of toxic masculinity set on the Gare Loch.”
Cunningham added: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining Claire and the team as head of development. Synchronicity has established a reputation for excellence, working with some of the most exciting writers on a slate of incredible projects. I’m looking forward to building on that and getting more brilliant dramas made, for U.K. and international audiences.”
