RDF executives Rachel Arnold and Jon Green are to leave the Banijay UK label as part of the indie group’s wider factual entertainment restructure.

Arnold, creative director, and Green, creative director of development are both exiting after a year as Banijay UK closes the indies they both oversaw: Definitely and Little Wonder.

Both labels were formed in 2018. Definitely was initially a sub-label of Zeppotron, made shows such as Channel 4 doc Gemma Collins: Self Harm & Me and Channel 5’s Million Pound Motorhomes, while Little Wonder was spun out of factual label Wonder and took on its development slate when Wonder was folded last year.

The decisions follow a string of changes in the past year, with Kitty Welsh recently becoming chief executive of the newly-formed RDF Group, which comprises RDF, RDF West, Remarkable Factual and Fizz.

The group has three heads of production: Rosa Moratiel (RDF), Angela Oakhill (RDF West) and Hayley Vermeulen (Remarkable Factual).

Earlier this month, Mereditch Chambers joined as RDF London managing director, while Matt Winter heads a new cross-group development team.

According to a report in Broadcast, Banijay UK chief executive Patrick Holland said the latest moves will bring “stability, clarity and focus” to RDF’s fact ent offering, which includes the likes of Eat Well for Less, Only Connect and Tipping Point.
