Nick Mather has been appointed as Possessed’s new creative director.
The ITV Studios’ label is behind international hit shows, such as Catchpoint and 5 Gold Rings.
Mather, previously managing director of Remarkable TV, has created and co-created a number of popular game shows, including Pointless and Goldenballs.
Glenn Hugill, managing director and founder of Possessed, said: ‘‘Rational optimism has been the house mantra at Possessed from the very start.
‘‘With Nick’s arrival, alongside an extended role as Chairman for Adam MacDonald, there is no blinking in our collective dare to believe. Possessed now has the most complete team in the business. Current travails hold no fear for us.’’
Mather said: ‘‘Glenn and I gravitated to each other 15 years ago at Endemol. He and his incredible team have built a creative powerhouse at Possessed. It feels like coming home; which is handy because that’s where we work now.’’
