CPL Productions has appointed Simon Shearer-Wright (formerly of Viacom International Studios) as its new Head of Talent and HR. Reporting to CEO Danielle Lux, Simon oversees the producer’s strategy for sourcing, growing and retaining talent both within the company and on specific productions.

CPL is best known for producing E4 hit Married at First Sight UK and makes a wealth of UK unscripted shows including A League of Their Own and Rob & Romesh Vs.

“The TV industry thrives on talent, both in front of and behind the camera,” said Lux. “At CPL we believe nurturing and developing all our staff and creating a culture where they’re empowered to do their best work is absolutely paramount.”

Shearer-Wright called CPL a “vibrant, inclusive company with exceptional talent and great content.”
