STV Productions has appointed Claire Armspach to the newly-created role of Head of Drama Development.

The position has been established to enable the business to build on its success in securing recent commissions in the genre.  Filming has recently commenced on The Victim, a four-part thriller for BBC One starring Kelly Macdonald, John Hannah and James Harkness.

Earlier this year Claire was instrumental in bringing Elizabeth is Missing to commission for BBC One.  Based on the award winning, best-selling novel by Emma Healey, and adapted by Andrea Gibb, the drama combines a gripping mystery with a tender yet unflinching exploration of one woman’s struggle with dementia.

Claire joined the development team at STV Productions in 2011.  Previously, she worked for World Productions as a script editor and producer, before joining the Drama team at the BBC, where her credits include Holby City, Waking the Dead and Whistle and I’ll Come to You starring John Hurt.

“Claire’s fantastic writer relationships, impeccable taste and passion for TV drama is well known. So I’m delighted that she has agreed to take on this vital role driving development at such an exciting time for STV Drama.”

Sarah Brown, Head of Drama at STV Productions
