Fremantle has confirmed Mark Reynolds as its new Global Head of Documentaries, reporting to Andrea Scrosati, Group COO and CEO Continental Europe.

Reynolds joined the company as Interim Global Head of Documentaries in January, in which time he has “set the positioning strategy for Fremantle’s Global Documentaries unit.”

Prior to Fremantle, Reynolds was a consultant advising producers and platforms on programming, co-production and distribution strategies. Before this, he was Unscripted Portfolio Director at BBC Studios and also had a long career at BBC Worldwide delivering the commercial and content strategy for factual for global distribution.

Andrea Scrosati, Group COO and CEO Continental Europe commented: “Mark has been a key member of the Fremantle family since he joined earlier this year, and I am delighted he has taken this role.  With his extensive commercial expertise in the unscripted genre on a global scale, Mark will continue to spearhead our activity in the premium Documentary space, working with our world-class production companies and labels to position Fremantle as one of the leading players in this genre.”

Mark Reynolds, Global Head of Documentaries, Fremantle added: “I am excited to continue my role at Fremantle working with such an experienced and talented team. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with some of the world’s finest and most innovative storytellers, across a diverse range of critically acclaimed documentaries, to continue to grow a world class reputation of quality for Fremantle Global Documentaries.”

Fremantle has made a number of strategic investments in documentary and non-scripted including more than 20 Fremantle documentary labels, producing in over 12 territories.  Most recently they added Beach House Pictures and Asacha Media Group to the Fremantle family. This follows the acquisition of 72 Films, Wildstar Films and Silvio Productions in 2022, as well as the launch of premium documentaries label, Undeniable last year.
