- Former Sky Vision exec to manage non-scripted acquisitions outside of North America
Red Arrow Studios International has appointed Niki Page to the newly created role of VP, Factual. Based in Red Arrow Studio International’s London office, she will manage non-scripted acquisitions outside of North America, working with both third-party and in-house producers, and will report into Alex Fraser, EVP Acquisitions and Content Investment.
Page joins from Sky Vision where she spent six years as Head of Factual and Factual Entertainment Acquisitions. During her tenure, she brokered a first-look deal with ‘Escape to the Chateau’ producer, Spark Media Partners, and acquired all Levison Wood’s series including ‘Walking the Nile’ and ‘Walking the Himalayas’. She also worked closely with Sky-owned production companies including Blast Films and Love Productions.
Prior to this, Page held positions at Fremantle International where she worked across Jamie Oliver’s content and in-house produced series including ‘Grand Designs’ and ‘Escape to the Country’, and at Channel 4 International where she most notably acquired ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ from Renegade Pictures.
Alex Fraser said: “Niki has excellent relationships with key independent producers and rights holders and an impressive track record in acquiring high-profile, globally successful non-scripted content. Having worked with Niki before, I know this experience, combined with her pro-active and creative approach, will make her an invaluable asset as we continue expanding our engaging factual offering around the world.”
Niki Page added: “Red Arrow Studios International has established an impressive slate of award-winning non-scripted content that is enjoyed by audiences globally. I’m delighted to be joining Alex and the team and to work closely with producers to identify fresh titles to strengthen the company’s factual offering even further.”
Shirley Bowers, VP Sales & Acquisitions (North America, Australia, New Zealand), will continue to manage non-scripted acquisitions in North America.
