C4 drama chiefs exit, ink ITV pact

Campbell, Wulff-Cochrane set up shingle Noho

Two of the U.K.’s most internationally successful drama toppers are leaving Channel 4 to set up Noho Film and TV with ITV Studios.

Camilla Campbell and Robert Wulff-Cochrane — who greenlit C4’s “Any Human Heart,” “Skins,” “Misfits” and “This Is England” — will serve as creative directors at the 50-50 joint venture, which will have board representation from ITV Studios, the production arm of commercial web ITV.

The pair will begin development on scripted drama skewed toward a young adult audience in the first half of 2012.

They ran the C4 drama department for the past two years, winning 15 BAFTAs.

ITV Studios is ramping up activities at home and internationally as part of a five-year transformation plan.

Kevin Lygo, managing director, ITV Studios, said: “This joint venture is a new way for ITV Studios to work with creative talent and continue to build our drama output.

“Camilla and Robert have commissioned some of the most successful and interesting young adult drama in recent years. With their creative leadership we expect Noho Film and TV to quickly develop a strong production slate.”

The two are the latest high-level departures from C4’s commissioning team in recent weeks. Documentary topper Hamish Mykura is among those who have exited.
