BBC adds series to Wearing’s job

Michael Wearing, the BBC’s head of drama serials, has had his responsibilities widened to include series.

The move is part of the restructuring of the pubcaster’s drama department under its new chief, Charles Denton.

George Faber has been appointed head of single plays, a job that formerly fell under BBC film chief Mark Shivas, who will concentrate on the pubcaster’s theatrical movies alone.
