Eaton appointed Commissioning Executive at Sky
July 11, 2022
Dwayne Eaton has joined Sky as a Commissioning Executive working across Sky Arts and Entertainment.
Reporting to Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment, Eaton will join the wider commissioning team as they continue to deliver original content across Sky Arts and Sky Max. He’ll form a key part of the team responsible for popular shows such as A League of Their Own, Rob & Romesh Vs, Portrait Artist of the Year and Life & Rhymes, and he’ll support Sky Arts’ mission to bring the arts to everyone as a free-to-air-channel.
Eaton joins Sky from the BBC where he worked on titles including The Graham Norton Show, Drag Race UK, Only Connect and Mastermind. He went on to commission BBC Three’s streetwear competition The Drop and black music entertainment show Tonight with Target, hosted by DJ Target.
Eaton commented: “I’m genuinely excited to be joining Sky and being part of Phil Edgar-Jones’ team. Sky has always had a special place in my heart and it’s a dream come true to be joining their Commissioning department. I grew up on a council estate and when I was young, Sky was the only entertainment we could really afford. We didn’t go to the cinema or theatre so Sky was my window to the world. I can’t wait to get started and I look forward to making some amazing shows.”
Edgar-Jones added: “We are thrilled to have Dwayne join our small but perfectly formed Arts and Entertainment team and look forward to getting stuck in to the next chapter in our comedy Ents and arts journey. He’s totally brilliant, you’ll love him.”
