Man Like Mobeen Executive Producer, David Simpson, has been named as Tiger Aspect’s Head of Comedy.
Simpson has been with Tiger Aspect since 2015 working across the company’s comedy slate. His credits include series 1-3 of the multi award winning Man Like Mobeen (BBC Three), BAFTA nominated The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk (BBC Two) and series 1-4 of Danny & Mick (CBBC).
In his new role, reporting to Banijay UK Executive Chairman, Peter Salmon and CEO, Lucinda Hicks, he will oversee all comedy production for the indie, taking the lead on creative vision and working closely with talent, agents, writers, buyers and producers to deliver the next generation of Tiger comedy hits.
Peter Salmon, Executive Chairman, Banijay UK said; “David is an award-winning talent who has cut his teeth working with some of the best new people in the business. We know the world needs to laugh right now and there is a huge opportunity to build on Tiger’s reputation for world class comedy and to find the next big names from all corners of the UK. David is a talent spotter extraordinaire and absolutely the man to take Tiger comedy to the next level.”
David Simpson said; “Tiger Aspect has such a rich history in comedy. The forthcoming Happy Birthday Mr Bean on ITV and the recent Vicar of Dibley In Lockdown shorts for the BBC are a wonderful reminder of some of the hit shows Tiger has produced. Next year we have a raft of series in production including series 4 of Man Like Mobeen, the next series of Hitmen for Sky, Lazy Susan for BBC 3 and several further series still to be announced. It’s a hugely exciting time for Tiger Comedy and I can’t wait to get started working on the Tiger hits of the future.”
He takes up the role with immediate effect.
