Edgar-Jones Set To Join Sky

The former Creative Director of Channel 4’s Big Brother is to jump ship and join Sky as their Head of Entertainment.
Phil Edgar Jones who is perhaps best known for production credits such as The Big Breakfast Show, The Sunday Show and The Jack Docherty Show will take on the role with immediate effect.
He will oversee all entertainment production across Sky's channels, including Sky1, Sky Atlantic, Sky Arts and Sky Movies. He replaces the outgoing Duncan Gray.
Previously he was Creative Director of Remarkable Pictures, part of Endemol UK, where he oversaw Big Brother for Channel 4 and a number of entertainment projects including reality shows The Salon, Space Cadets, Shattered and Seven Days on the Breadline.
