Mount said: “It’s no exaggeration to say I am beyond delighted to be joining Two Brothers and the brilliant team here. Always utterly original in their output and always rooted with a commercial sensibility that I love. I look forward to building out what is already an impressive slate into one that is competitive and exciting for the domestic and international TV audience.”

Dovetailing both drama and comedy will be Cleo Hetherington who joins as Head of Development from Drama Republic where she previously acted as Head of Development and script executive. Hetherington aims to galvanise a unique slate, continuing to focus on both international limited and returning series whilst putting writers’ voices at the centre to tell entertaining and distinctive stories.

Hetherington said: “What a joy to be a fan of a production company’s work from afar and then be able to join them! I love the shows that Two Brothers Pictures make; they’re bold, ambitious, funny, and exactly what I want to watch. I can’t wait to help the team to develop yet more brilliant television. It’s a properly exciting time for the company and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”

Harry and Jack Williams added: “This is an exciting new chapter for us. We are thrilled to have Sarah, Michael, and Emma continue their invaluable work while welcoming the established talents of Daisy, Katie, and Cleo. Their passion and expertise perfectly align with our vision for the future.
