Surian Fletcher-Jones and Georgina Gordon-Smith join the London-based TV development arm of the acclaimed production house.

Working Title Television, the small-screen arm of the British film powerhouse and a joint venture with NBCUniversal, has made two new additions to its U.K. development team.

Andrew Woodhead, who was named managing director in March of this year, announced Thursday that Surian Fletcher-Jones and Georgina Gordon-Smith have joined the London-based outfit.

Fletcher-Jones, formerly head of drama development at Channel 4, where she oversaw shows such as Indian Summers, has been appointed Working Title TV's head of development, while Gordon-Smith, who joins from United Agents, will be a development executive at the company.

The two will work with Woodhead to develop high-end scripted British programming, building on the TV unit's recent credits including You, Me and the Apocalypse and London Spy. The team also will work closely with Working Title's Film and U.S. Television’s business, led by president Andrew Stearn, and in unison with NBCUniversal International Studios, led by Michael Edelstein and JoAnn Alfano.

“I am thrilled to have Surian and George joining me on this great adventure," said Woodhead. "I have worked with them both over the last few years in my role as an independent producer and was always so impressed with their creative instinct and generosity of spirit. They are both a great fit for the business and together we are excited about the opportunities and challenges ahead.”
