Channel 4 executives find new gigs

Other shingles hire broadcaster's departing staff

Creative executives leave Channel 4

Enough execs have left Channel 4 in the past two months to start a small production company. In fact, in one case, that’s exactly what happened.

Winners of 15 Baftas for such shows as teen skein “Skins” and period piece “Any Human Heart,” Camilla Campbell and Robert Wulff-Cochrane are off to work in Blighty’s independent sector — a frequent destination for former U.K. broadcast execs — setting up Noho Film and TV in a 50-50 joint venture with ITV Studios.

Others have been hired by existing production outfits. Sue Murphy, who worked at Channel 4 for more than a decade, is the new creative director of Optomen and One Potato Two Potato, which makes Gordon Ramsay’s shows in the U.K. and the U.S.

Her record in factual entertainment/lifestyle shows is impressive; she helped nurture the TV career of campaigning chef Jamie Oliver, and backed such shows as “Undercover Boss,” “Supersize vs. Superskinny,” “Embarrassing Bodies,” “How to Look Good Naked,” and “Grand Designs” — all of which have helped give Channel 4 its singular mojo.

Ramsay once described Murphy as “the most creative brain in television.”
