Former Endemol Shine Factual director Kim Shillinglaw has become a non-exec director of factual indie Curious Films.

Curious Films, founded by Dov Freedman and Charlie Russell, has made shows including Reclaiming Amy and Squad Goals.

Before Endemol Shine, Shillinglaw held various senior positions at the BBC including stints as both BBC4 and BBC2 controller. She left Endemol Shine shortly after the Banijay takeover.

Dov Freedman, Curious Films’ co-founder, said: “Kim’s expertise and vast experience will be invaluable as we capitalise on recent wins and position the company for accelerated growth over the next 12 months. One of our key objectives, alongside expanding our existing work for UK and international broadcasters and streamers is building returning series brands – like Squad Goals – and Charlie and I couldn’t be prouder that Kim has agreed to come on board and help us achieve this.”

Shillinglaw added: “Curious Films is in an exciting position at the moment, with a growing reputation for films that are great watches and stand out from the crowd. I love their commitment to quality entertainment and think there’s a real opportunity to keep growing with the talented team led by Dov and Charlie.”
