Fulwell73, the indie behind Sounds Like Friday Night, The Late Late Show and Roast Battle, has hired Caroline Roseman as UK head of development.
In the newly created post, Roseman will work across Fulwell’s entire TV slate including the two new formats Pants on Fire and Virtuosos, reporting into Fulwell’s senior executives Heather Greenwood and Carly Shackleton.
Prior to joining Fulwell, Roseman worked at Whizz Kid Entertainment for 8 years, where she was most recently Head of Development and created BBQ Champ for ITV, won the business to produce Lip Sync Battle for the UK, created the Frank Sinatra: Our Way special for BBC One and comedy reality series Prank Pad for ITV2. She also headed up the team that secured the commissions for Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief (BBC One), and chat shows Talks Music (Sky Arts).
Before that she spent six years at ITV Entertainment as part of its in-house development team involved in the creative renewal of such shows as Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, the An Audience With brand and the Mania’s music specials brand.
At ITV, Roseman also created the reality series Dirty Dancing: The Time Of Your Life and worked on some of ITV’s biggest talent-led programming – including a one off special with Girls Aloud and a stand-alone series with Paris Hilton – Paris Hilton’s British Best Friend.
She started her career at ITV Sport and was a producer on Sky 1’s show Football’s Next Star with Jamie Redknapp.
“The Fulwell 73 story is as compelling as their content and I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of their next chapter as they expand in the UK and across the world,” said Roseman. “Their reputation for quality and innovation, trailblazing entertainment and great story-telling has made them a trusted home and go-to production company for A-list stars, broadcasters, film studios, record labels and brands.”
Fulwell 73’s partner Leo Pearlman said: “Caroline is simply one of the most talented development executives working in TV and her track record creating or working on some of the biggest hit shows in entertainment programming over the last decade speaks for itself. Her experience across multiple genres – music, entertainment, sport and talent-led specials – means she’s the perfect fit for us and our existing highly talented team so it’s great to have her onboard.”
