Former Sky head of drama Cameron Roach is the new Chair of the Society’s North West Centre.
‘I’m incredibly honoured,’ said Roach. ‘The North West has a long history of exceptional programme-making
and enabling the next generation of talent – and the RTS has always celebrated and supported both.’
Theresa Wise, CEO of the RTS, said: ‘As the UK production sector returns to full swing, the work of our regional centres is central to supporting the work of our wonderful television community.’
Roach’s drama career began as a script editor on Casualty. He went on to work on many of the best TV dramas of the past couple of decades, producing Life on Mars and commissioning Chernobyl. He succeeds Richard Frediani, editor of BBC Breakfast.
