Bravo Gets New Commissioning Editor

One of the UK's leading male entertainment channels, Bravo, has announced the appointment of Richard Watsham as Commissioning Editor.
Joining in a pivotal year which will see a full rebrand and repositioning of the channel, Richard comes to Bravo with a wealth of over ten years experience in both production and development from Endemol, Granada, North One, Two Four Productions and Twenty Twenty where he worked across a mixture of factual entertainment shows and observational documentaries.
These include hits The Baron, Coleen's Real Women, Dating in the Dark and Fat Families.
Prior to this, he worked at Outline Productions where he directed shows The House of Tiny Tearaways, Couples on the Couch and one of BBC3’s first commissions, How Weird Are You?
Mark Sammon, Head of Commissioning at VMtv said: "Richard’s huge passion for Bravo and original content shines through and I am thrilled to have him join the commissioning team as we continue our commitment to UK production."
Richard Watsham added: "This is a genuinely exciting time to be at Bravo. With our new direction and healthy budgets I want people to be surprised by the quality and compelling nature of our commissions.
"I am looking now for original, noisy ideas that will bring broader audiences to the channel. Many of those will feature popular, recognisable talent. I look forward to working with producers so that together we can define a unique new identity for Bravo."
