Kalel Productions, the indie behind Channel 5’s Rich Kids Go Skint, is forging a development team with hires from Lime, DSP and Youngest Media.

As the Greenbird-backed indie’s first head of development, Jamie Ingley will lead a team that aims to expand its factual entertainment and docs slate.

Ingley joins from Lime Pictures, where he was senior development producer and helped create Netflix talent show Dance Monsters and Channel 4’s Stand Up and Deliver.

He previously co-created Banijay UK shows Million Pound Drop and Pointless and has worked in production on the likes of Big Brother and Soccer Aid.

Joining as development producer is Elliot Moore, who developed the likes of C4’s Moneybags, ITV’s Small Fortune and BBC3’s House Share. In a previous role at Gameface, he helped to develop ITV’s Britain’s Brightest Family.

They will be supported by development researcher Isaac Soulding, one of Banijay’s 2019 ‘Brightbulb’ interns who has worked as a development researcher on DSP’s factual entertainment and specialist factual slate.

Set up by former MTV Networks exec Nick Parnes in 2009, Kalel initially co-produced Objective Productions shows including The Undercover Princes and Impractical Jokers.

Under Greenbird, it has produced a varied slate that includes C4 doc Undercover Sexual Harassment – the Truth, C5 single Rose West: Born Evil? and BBC3’s Stupid Man, Smart Phone.
