eOne Hires Pair for Unscripted TV Team


Entertainment One (eOne) has appointed Matt Pritchard and Matt Walton to the London-based roles of executive VP of unscripted television.

Together, Pritchard and Walton will oversee the day-to-day operations of eOne’s unscripted team in the U.K., building a new development and production unit and managing key relationships with U.K. networks, producers and talent.

Pritchard joins eOne from Boomerang, where he served as managing director since 2016. Walton joins from ITV Studios’ 12 Yard, where he was head of entertainment and factual.

“With equally impressive backgrounds and their shared experience building some of the biggest unscripted hits and formats to come out of the U.K., we are eager to have Matt and Matt bring this expertise to our international unscripted team,” said Tara Long, eOne’s president of global unscripted. “As we continue to build on our strong foundation in the U.K. and launch the next wave of unscripted hits, they will be key to driving our ongoing success.”
