Great Scott Media Unveils Pair of Senior Hires


Great Scott Media, an All3Media company, has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of two new hires.

Nadia Afiari has joined the team as head of production, and Sonia Sohal has been tapped for the post of head of development at Great Scott Media, which is led by Leon Wilson and Ed Sleeman. Afiari was most recently a production executive at South Shore and has also worked with Definitely and Talkback. Sohal, meanwhile, has worked with RAW, Studio Ramsay and Lion TV.

The hiring news comes as Great Scott Media moves into new offices, having been based at All3Media’s headquarters since launching in January 2020. The company has three new series currently in production and a number of other projects in late-stage development.

Wilson and Sleeman said: “Welcome to Nadia and Sonia—whose appointments speak to Great Scott’s ambition to produce big-scale entertainment, factual entertainment and reality. Nadia will be instrumental in bringing our three series currently in production to fruition and Sonia will be in charge of creating new and fresh formats, focusing on both broadcasters and streaming platforms in the U.K. and global markets. Having the top team now in place at Great Scott makes us very excited for the future.”
