True North is closing its Manchester office after 10 years and will manage all of its productions through its Leeds site.

Manchester-based creative director Fiona O’Sullivan, who has overseen commissions such as MTV’s The Valleys and Teen Mom and BBC3’s Cherry Valentine: Gypsy Queen and Proud, will step down this summer.

True North said that Manchester-based freelancers working on current projects will not be affected by the move, and that it would establish temporary offices in the city, and elsewhere, for specific productions as and when needed.

The indie’s chief creative officer Katy Thorogood said: “Fiona leaves a lasting legacy at True North, not only for the impressive raft of programmes she has brought to the company, but also her creative spirit, her passion for storytelling and her advocacy for the welfare of everyone in front of and behind the camera. She will be sorely missed by all of us.”

True North’s other shows include Channel 4’s A New Place in the Sun and Sky’s Forensics: Catching the Killer.
