MGM Television has launched a new unscripted television production hub in the UK headed up by former Channel 4 formats boss Dom Bird.

MGM International Unscripted Content will adapt the studio’s unscripted formats as well as producing an original slate of unscripted shows.

Dom Bird has previously worked as head of formats for Channel 4 and has also been the creative director for BBC Entertainment.

The announcement of the new division was made by Mark Burnett, MGM’s chairman of the worldwide television group, who said “I’ve known Dom for more than 15-years, he has a keen understanding of how to build great shows that relate to audiences worldwide.  The U.K. is a very important market for MGM and I’m excited that Dom will be leading our charge of unscripted content.”

“Mark Burnett and the team at MGM really are the very best in the business and I’m thrilled to be joining their efforts to expand the reach of this iconic company,” said Bird.
