Naked hires Text Santa producer

Naked Entertainment, the indie established by former Fox and Discovery commissioner Simon Andreae, has hired Text Santa producer Matthew Cox.

Cox joins the Fremantle Media-backed indie as executive producer and will work across Naked’s slate of non-scripted programming.

Cox was most recently at ITV Studios, where he was a series producer of ITV’s fundraising series Text Santa. Previously he worked on shows including ITV’s Superstar, Channel 4’s Playing It Straight and Channel 5’s Alive: Back to the Andes.

The hire comes after the company won commissions including Panama-set survival format Stripped And Stranded for Channel 5 and 5 Star’s 100% Hotter as well as short-form series Threesome Dating for All 4.

Naked Entertainment chief executive Simon Andreae said: “Matt has an incredibly wide range of programming under his belt and brings a wit and warmth to all that he touches.”

Cox added: “In under a year, Naked Entertainment is fast becoming one of the UK’s most exciting indies evolving the non-scripted space. I am thrilled to be joining Simon and his team, and to play a part in helping the company continue to develop audacious and high impact programming in both the UK and US.”
