The appointment comes as UKTV steps up its commitment to original productions.
Reporting into Richard Watsham, UKTV’s Director of Commissioning, Waddell will be joining UKTV in March this year to lead the company’s production management team.
She will have ultimate responsibility for the production of all UKTV Originals, including newly announced Judge Romesh, Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and Cop Car Workshop.

Richard Watsham said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kerry on quality shows such as Red Dwarf, Undercover and Zapped. Her collaborative approach and the significant experience she’s built up by working on some of the best-known shows in the UK, positions her perfectly for the kind of ambitious projects that we have coming down the line. The scale of the role is growing constantly as we increase our spend and hours and commission across more genres than ever before. Kerry can’t start soon enough!”
Kerry added: “I join the UKTV family at an incredibly exciting time and can’t wait to be part of the team that is investing in original programming at a record high.”
