Former BBC exec Maggie Boden joins Ink Factory creative team
Maggie Boden has been hired as director of development for the London and LA-based indie prodco The Ink Factory.
Boden, who was formerly development producer for BBC Drama Studios and Big Light Productions, will be based out of the London office and report to The Ink Factory’s recently appointed creative director Katherine Butler.
She also worked as a development producer at Mainstreet Pictures across original drama projects for BBC, ITV, C4 and Sky, and her credits include work on Mr Selfridge, Scott and Bailey and Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
The appointment follows a recent bolstering of the development team at Ink Factory after its partnership agreement with Endeavor Content, which took a stake in the prodco in February.
The Ink Factory is operated by co-CEOs and founders Stephen and Simon Cornwell, the sons of acclaimed novelist John Le Carré, and has earned praise for its adaptations of Le Carré novels, including miniseries 2016’s The Night Manager and The Little Drummer Girl in 2018 and the film Our Kind Of Traitor in 2016.
The company is also developing a series based on The Spy Who Came In From the Cold, produced in association with Paramount TV, the BBC and AMC.
The Cornwells commented: “The Ink Factory is at its core a creative enterprise, committed to originating and developing high quality, thought-provoking entertainment.
“With exceptional talent like Maggie joining us in the UK under the expert guidance of Katherine, we are creating an enhanced development capability and look forward to significantly expanding our roster of distinctive, original projects in both television and film, and to further strengthening our creative network.”
