RED Taps New Head of Production


RED Production Company has hired Margaret Conway as its new head of production.

Conway will oversee productions across RED’s developing scripted slate, as well as its factual slate through Sow the Seed. Conway will be responsible for ensuring that all shows are delivered on time, within budget and of the quality that is in line with the RED brand.

Taking up the role from March 21, Conway will report to RED CEO Sarah Doole.

Doole said: “Mags is one of the best in the business and hugely passionate about what she does. She has fantastic experience working across a broad range of titles that have proven popular with both audiences and critics and has expertise in filming within the U.K. and overseas. Mags may have grown up in Ireland, but this part of the world has become her adopted home, and I know she will be invaluable to RED as we seek to develop and produce global stories viewed through a Northern lens.”

Conway added: “Production has long been a passion of mine, and I’ve been extremely fortunate that my career has allowed me to expand my skills and develop my expertise in this field. RED is one of the most exciting indies in the business, and I can see already that they have an exciting slate in development not just in scripted, but in factual too. I’m looking forward to working with Sarah and the team to bring all my knowledge and experience to bear and to help them deliver against their ambitions. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
