The BBC’s Acting Head of Formats and Features Commissioning Donna Clark is to join DSP as joint MD alongside existing Managing Director Emily Dalton.
During her time at the BBC Clark has commissioned shows including Full Steam Ahead (BBC2), The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes (BBC2), Eat Well for Less (BBC1). She has also overseen the relaunches of Watchdog and Gardeners’ World. Prior to this she was Director of Factual at Lion TV.
Clark will join DSP in March.

Kim Shillinglaw, Director of Factual, Endemol Shine UK said: “I’m a great believer in the audience appetite for content rich popular factual. The ratings for shows like Back in Time for Dinner, Inside the Factory, Arctic Live, Eat Well for Less and Trust Me I’m Doctor all show how powerful the mix of pleasure and content can be. With her commitment to high quality popular factual, love of rolling her sleeves up to get a big show right and experience across programme making and commissioning, I’m delighted Donna is joining to help build on Emily’s terrific creativity at DSP."
