Primal Media Hires Head of Factual
Primal has made the first of several new senior executive hires, as it grows its business out from entertainment. Emily Kennedy, the executive producer responsible for Jamie Oliver’s Channel 4 series over the last four years, joins Primal as Head of Factual in January. Her other executive credits include Secret Eaters (C4), Inside Out Homes (C4), The Art Show (Sky Arts) and for five years she series produced The Culture Show (BBC2).
Steiner said: “Emily has a reputation for great ideas and top class execution across features, factual entertainment and arts. We love mixing genres and are looking forward to creating new shows together.”
Kennedy said: “I’m delighted to be joining Primal. Mat and Adam are fantastically talented programme makers and the opportunity to grow their output and combine our passions is something I can’t wait to get cracking on!”
