Ridley Scott Associates has appointed Anna Murphy to its Unscripted division in the newly created role of Creative Director.

She will work alongside Global Head of Unscripted Dominic Crossley-Holland, Kai Hsiung, the company’s Global MD, and Rich Nicholas, Global CFO and COO.

The recently established Unscripted Division has projects under its belt including the Robbie Williams limited series for Netflix, and with “a host of projects in production and development,” Murphy will work closely with Crossley-Holland to “steer the creative strategy of the Unscripted Division, seek out new partnerships and opportunities, and help to ensure the continued quality of output in an executive producer capacity.”

Murphy joins from two-time Academy award-winning Grain Media, where she started as Head of Development in 2015 and went on to become its Creative Director in 2020. As well as overseeing Grain’s creative strategy, she also executive produced a number of films including: the feature doc Scouts Honour for Netflix, International Emmy nominated India’s Forbidden Love, and Grierson Award nominated Tigers: Hunting the Traffickers, and The Psychedelic Drugs Trial and Death in Bollywood for the BBC.

Dominic Crossley-Holland said: “We are thrilled that RSA has attracted talent of such prestigious calibre as Anna Murphy and are very excited to welcome her into the RSA family.  Anna will undoubtedly be an incredible addition at the helm of our very talented team. RSA Unscripted is young, spirited and ambitious – and we want to continue to be changemakers in documentary storytelling. Anna’s wealth of knowledge and experience is second to none and invaluable as we navigate to meet the demands of the ever-changing market. I look forward to our collaboration, and our continued creative growth.”

Anna Murphy said: ‘It’s a real honour to get the opportunity to work at a company as diverse, exciting and innovative as RSA. I can’t wait to join the incredibly talented team at RSA Unscripted, and to explore all the wonderful storytelling opportunities open to us”.
