Fledgling prodco Riverdog hires development boss from ITV

Riverdog Productions, the recently-formed Greenbird-backed UK producer, has hired Katherine Bovey as its head of development.

She joins from Shiver, the factual imprint of UK broadcaster ITV.

Riverdog Productions was set up by former ITV Studios head of London factual Tim Miller and Come Dine With Me creator Nell Butler.

Miller said: “Katherine is a fantastic person to have on board because her experience is so broad. Not many people can claim they’ve worked on the political programme Dimbleby as well as Sex on the Job.”
