Sky’s head of non-scripted commissioning Celia Taylor is to leave the broadcaster later this month.

Sky’s Managing Director of Content Gary Davy announced the news to Sky staff in an email yesterday.
Phil Edgar Jones will take on responsibility for the non-scripted slate in addition to his role as Head of Sky Arts.  

Davy said: “I want to personally thank Celia for her huge contribution to the success of our originated output during her seven years at Sky.
“Her hits are simply too many to list here but include Sky Entertainment’s first BAFTA, documentaries that opened the Sundance Film Festival and were shortlisted for an Oscar …twice .. and the BAFTA winning, joyous, fresh take on panel shows A League Of Their Own. Her ability to get established talent to do fresh and exciting things on Sky – in particular Karl Pilkington, Ross Kemp and David Attenborough has been impressive.
“And finally the unique and brilliant (not to mention International Emmy Award winning) 50 Ways to Kill your Mammy.  The recognition keeps on coming, most recently a Grierson Award just this week.
“Celia has had an enormous impact and we will all miss her.”
