Sarah Deane - LA Productions

LA Productions has announced its Head of Development Sarah Deane is set to leave the production company at the end of the year.

Deane, who joined the operation permanently in 2016, plans to return to scriptwriting full-time. 

She worked on the first two series of LA Production’s BBC Drama Moving on before she permanently joined LA Productions and has worked in the roles as both Script Editor and Head of Development.

Colin McKeown MBE, founder and producer at LA Productions, said: “On behalf of LA Productions, I am sad to announce that Sarah Deane will be leaving Team LA as Head of Development at the end of the year in order to return to scriptwriting full-time.

“We are very proud that LA Productions gave Sarah her first writing commission on the inaugural series of Moving On and, in addition to her other credits, we are currently in post-production on her original four-part drama for Channel 5, Compulsion.

“On behalf of us all I want to thank Sarah for her incredible contribution over the past six years, and we look forward to collaborating on some exciting projects as we head into 2022 and beyond.”
