Jeremy Dear, md of The Ideas Room, and former SVP at Pioneer Productions, is moving his fledgling indie into Warner Bros TV-owned Wall to Wall.

Dear will be joining the senior management team as Director of International Factual.  Under the terms of the deal, Dear will spearhead Wall to Wall's US East Coast factual operations and contribute to the range of their UK output, with existing Ideas Room projects being produced under their umbrella as well as creating new shows for the Wall to Wall brand .   
Dear said:  "I've long been a huge admirer of the quality and the extraordinary breadth of Wall to Wall's output.   We partnered with them earlier this year on an entertainment format development and it was a really enjoyable and fruitful collaboration which led naturally to this step.  Their creative and commercial muscle means they're a great home for us and I'm really looking forward to getting started with such a great team of people.”
Leanne Klein, Wall to Wall CEO said "We are absolutely delighted that Jeremy is joining us to lead our growth in the US. We already work closely with National Geographic, PBS and other US Channels and we now have the perfect team to build this side of our business even further.  He has an exciting slate of projects and we look forward to working together with him to produce the quality factual programming we are both renowned for."
The Ideas Room was formed in 2014.  Its maiden production was Inside the Court of Henry VIII for PBS earlier this year.  Dear, who started his career at the BBC went on to become Head of Television for the UK Travel Channel before becoming SVP at Tinopolis-owned Pioneer Productions.
