BBC Comedy has appointed a new Assistant Commissioner to “champion more suppliers” and “discover new comedy voices.”

Hannah Rose will be based at MediaCityUK and work on new and existing titles.

She’s currently a producer and commissioning lead for comedy at BBC Sounds, developing and producing scripted and entertainment titles.

“I’m so excited to be joining the BBC Comedy team to support their portfolio of dynamic programming and plans for the BBC Comedy Association whilst shining a light on talent in the North on and off screen,” she said.
