Discovery’s Bellamy set to join ITV

ITV has appointed Julian Bellamy as Managing Director of ITV Studios UK.  Bellamy, Discovery Networks International’s Creative Director and Head of Commissioning, takes up the position later this year.

“Julian is an exceptional talent who combines outstanding creativity with excellent strategic leadership,” says ITV Studios MD, Kevin Lygo. “He brings with him a wealth of experience and a fantastic track record of success in programming, production and business management.  I look forward to welcoming him to ITV Studios later in the year.”

In his three years at Discovery, Bellamy ran production and development across 200 countries, with commissioning teams in five main international bases.

Bellamy succeeds Denise O’Donoghue, who recently announced her intention to step down from her role as MD of ITV Studios UK at the end of this year. Following her departure, she will continue to sit on the ITVS Board.
