Cathal is a talented developer and brings a wealth of rich storytelling experience to the team, and he will be instrumental in building and developing our ambitious premium slate of series and single docs. We’re looking forward to working with Cathal, who will help us to continue bringing brilliant series to premium platforms and build a world-class slate.”
