Sky’s director of drama, Cameron Roach is to step down from his role in the spring.

In an internal memo, Gary Davey, Ceo of Sky Studios, said that Roach was to step down from his role to spend more time with his family who are based in Manchester.

He said that “as well as raising the scale, ambition and critical acclaim of Sky Drama, Cameron has been instrumental in Sky’s drive to produce more diverse programming, both in front of and behind the camera.”

Davey added that chief content officer Jane Millichip would work with director of programming Zai Bennett and the Sky UK team “to ensure we continue to bring world-class original content to our customers. Indie development will continue to be led by the drama commissioners, as it is today, and Jane will work with Cameron and the team to decide how we best organise ourselves for continued success in drama.”

Roach was made director of drama at Sky in February last year and was acting head of drama since November 2018. Prior to that he worked with Anne Mensah across the Sky Original drama portfolio for five years, working across titles including Tin Star, Britannia, Fortitude, Riviera and Bulletproof.
