New chief appointed at FilmFour

Channel 4 drama chief Tessa Ross is to head their new film division FilmFour, the broadcaster confirmed on Wednesday.
Ross will step down as head of drama to focus on film, a move seen as crucial in proving that the channel is committed to film after closing down their stand-alone operation under Paul Webster and moving in-house.
Ross, who takes on the role with immediate effect, will only stay on as head of drama until a replacement is appointed. She will report directly to Channel 4 chief executive Mark Thompson.
"She will be relinquishing her role as head of drama," the channel said. "There will be an entirely separate film department."
