ITV Studios has named Julie Clark as Director of Production for its UK drama operations.

She joins from Studio Lambert, where she has been Head of Production for Drama, since 2018.

The new role will see her work across ITV Studio’s companies including Jeff Pope’s Factual Drama and Nicola Shindler’s Quay Street Productions.

“Joining ITV Studios at this stage in their expansion is a tremendously exciting opportunity,” she said.

“I’m really looking forward to collaborating with all those wonderfully eclectic drama labels and to help maximise their potential in such a vibrant marketplace.”

Clark will report to Matt Cleary, Director of Production for Scripted in the UK.

“Julie will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our fast-growing scripted business, which is home to some of the best creative talent in the UK,” explained Cleary.

“As ITV Studios drama has continued to increase in size, so we have needed to build on the brilliant production talent base we have here, and Julie joining us only serves to strengthen that.”

Clark has recently been leading the production on Nautilus, a new live-action drama series for Disney+ based on Jules Verne’s classic novel, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Prior to Studio Lambert, Clark was Senior Production Executive at Left Bank Pictures where she oversaw shows Outlander, Electric Dreams, The Replacement and The Halcyon.
