Tiger Aspect’s head of comedy, Sophie Clarke-Jervoise, has been promoted to the role of managing director.
Clarke-Jervoise has been head of comedy at the production company, which has produced series as The Vicar of Dibley and Benidorm, since 2005.
She replaces Andrew Zein, who left the company two years ago.
She said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be leading such a hugely successful creative company. Tiger Aspect has been part of my DNA for many years and I’m looking forward to working across all areas of the business Â¬â€“ making Tiger a ‘one-stop-shop’ for talent â€“ and continuing to deliver unmissable programming.”
Prior to joining Tiger Aspect, Clarke-Jervoise worked for the BBC, where she developed and executive produced shows such as My Family and Coupling.
A spokesman said a new head of comedy would be appointed soon.
