Factual indie Little Gem has appointed Harriet Dormer as its new Head of Production and Rachel Harris as its new Head of Development.
The posts come after the recent appointment of Kate Maddigan as its new Head of Entertainment.
As Head of Production, Dormer will oversee all production of Little Gem’s slate of programmes as well as help to develop and grow the business.
She started her television career making political documentaries for the BBC before moving into producing entertainment shows. She freelanced as a Production Manager for a number of years working on a variety of shows including Friday Night Project, Jamie Saves Our Bacon, Channel 4’s Alternative Election Night, Chris Moyles Quiz Night and Paul O’Grady Live.
She also worked as a Production Executive at both Magnum Media and Remarkable Productions before moving to New York where she spent three years working as a line producer before becoming Director of Production at Zodiak Media and an Executive In Charge of Production at Leftfield Pictures before returning to the UK. Following her relocation she took on a Production Executive role at Lime Pictures where she oversaw a number of projects including E4’s Celebs Go Dating.
Meanwhile Rachel Harris has been promoted to a newly created role as Head of Development, where she will help to generate new business and oversee the development team and slate. She was previously Senior Development Producer at Little Gem.
She has worked in development at Twofour, Twenty Twenty, Betty, Outline, Keo and the BBC – where she helped to secure a raft of commissions including The Hoarder Next Door, Great British Garden Revival, Health Freaks and one-off specials such as Save Money, Lose Weight.
Ben Gale, CEO at Little Gem, said: “Both Harriet and Rachel have a wealth of experience and are extremely talented, creative people. I know they’ll bring their enthusiasm and drive to these roles and will be a great asset to the team.”
Both roles start immediately.
