Disney + continues its international originals efforts by hiring Channel 4 agent Sean Doyle as the point of contact for non-scripted producers in Europe and Africa.
Doyle, Assistant Director of Features and Formats for Channel 4 in the UK, will become Disney’s director of the original production for non-written general entertainment, with a special focus on the Disney + streamer. He reports to Liam Keelan, VP of Original Productions in Europe.
Doyle has been in his current position since September 2018. He lived in Northern Ireland and spent his time between Belfast and London promoting projects by producers outside the UK capital.
Before joining Channel 4, he worked for ViacomCBS’s own broadcaster Channel 5 and the BBC. His order credits include Channel 4 Celebrity snoopers, Sony-backed Stellify and the restart of Channel 5 from Blind date.
The deadline recently revealed one of the UK’s latest Disney + originals in the form of Adult animal. The natural history series is created by Wall to Wall, which is behind the Apple series You will.
