Wales-based factual indie, Wildflame Productions, has promoted Connie Fisher to Head Of Development.
As Development Executive, Fisher has worked at Wildflame since 2016. Her appointment as Head of Development follows a raft of UK and International commissions for the indie. She takes up her new role in September, joining the senior management team.
Paul Islwyn Thomas, CEO, Wildflame Productions, says: “Connie is a rising star of the industry. During her time at Wildflame we have seen her become a key part of the team, largely due to her keen eye for fantastic talent and compelling stories.
“As we continue to establish ourselves as one of the go-to production companies for factual in Wales and the UK, Connie will help us in our drive for international growth, including forging new relationships with global broadcasters, building on commissions for Discovery+, Smithsonian Channel/ViacomCBS and Science Channel.”
During her time at Wildflame, Fisher has worked as Development Executive across a slate of projects for BBC, S4C and Channel 5, including Michael Ball’s Wonderful Wales (C5), Katherine Jenkins: Home for Christmas (BBC) Carol Vorderman: Closer to Home and most recently the Bafta Award-winning documentary Strictly Amy Dowden: Crohns & Me for the BBC.
Prior to joining Wildflame Fisher was a prominent West End performer and the winner of Andrew Lloyd Webbers’ BBC 1 search; How do you solve a Problem like Maria? She also worked as a television presenter on shows such as BBC1’s Songs Of Praise and Cardiff Singer of the World, before moving into production.
Connie Fisher says: “I’m thrilled to take on this exciting new role and to build on Wildflame’s brilliant record. The business has never been more challenging or fast moving, and I am looking forward to working with the team to get the best ideas to commissioners in the UK and around the world.”
Fisher will report to Wildflame’s CEO, Paul Islwyn Thomas.
