Factual indie Wonderhood Studios has hired former Twenty Twenty exec Hana Canter to lead its TV division.
Canter, who spent eight years at Twenty Twenty and recently spent seven months as acting managing director of The Garden, has taken up the role of managing director of television at the indie.
Since it was set up by former Channel 4 chief executive David Abraham and ex-BBC Sam Anstiss in 2018, Wonderhood’s productions have included BBC3’s Trump in Tweets and Smithsonian Channel doc Coronavirus: Our Lockdown in Shanghai.
It recently picked up C4 format My Grandparents’ War, following the demise of the show’s creator Wild Pictures. This will now come under Canter's remit.
Wildhood’s current slate includes C4’s Baby Surgeons and Channel 5 access doc The Balmoral Hotel: An Extraordinary Year, as well as two projects in development at Sky.
At Twenty Twenty, Canter rose to business director, overseeing shows such as C4’s First Dates and BBC2’s A House Through Time.
Wonderhood also makes branded content for the likes of Nike, Branston and Comic Relief.
