YOUNGEST EXPANDS CREATIVE TEAM
Youngest Media boosts its creative team, promoting current head of development Aaron Rosenthal to Head of Entertainment and bringing in Kate McGlade as its new factual entertainment development executive.
Rosenthal has been promoted to the newly created role, having served as youngest Media’s Head of Development since the company’s launch. Rosenthal has been instrumental in creating shows such as E4’s Game of Clones, ITV’s Small Fortune (recently sold to NBC in the US) and HouseShare, youngest Media’s new docu-reality series for BBC3. He will be responsible for the company’s entertainment development slate and strategy, as well as executive producing entertainment shows.
The company has also appointed Kate McGlade as its new factual entertainment development executive. Her focus will be on delivering factual entertainment, features and popular factual formats. Prior to joining youngest McGlade held development roles at Renegade, Remarkable and Boundless. Her development and production credits include Bodyshockers (Channel 4), Secret Eaters (Channel 4), The Apprentice (BBC1), Mary Portas: Secret Shopper (Channel 4), Gok at the Races (Channel 4) and Mary Queen of Charity Shops (BBC2).
Rosenthal and McGlade will both report to Youngest’s Chief Creative Officer, Shaun Parry.
Parry said “Aaron is a brilliant creative with fantastic ideas and a joy to work with. His new role will allow him to build on our strong track record in the entertainment space and, with HouseShare soon to launch, we couldn’t be more pleased to have Kate join us to push forward in the factual entertainment space.”
Rosenthal said “I’m immensely proud to have been part of Youngest since the beginning, growing with the company and working with a great team on some fantastic shows. We’ve got a lot of exciting entertainment projects on the horizon and I can’t wait to get started on them in this new role”
