Dominic Buchanan and Bennett McGhee’s new production company Home Team has hired Jessica Hill as its new senior development executive, where she will support the producers in an effort to promote under-represented talent.
Hill joins Home Team from Sister, where she spent three years and was script executive on HBO and Sky’s upcoming series “Landscapers” and the BBC and Netflix’s “Giri/Haji.”
“Bennett and Dominic are dynamic producers with creative integrity and deservedly great relationships with talent,” she said in a release. “Their growing slate demonstrates their commitment to unexpected, unique storytelling and I am absolutely delighted to be joining them at Home Team.”
New on the scene, Home Team was launched in September 2020, backed by Calculus Capital and Stargrove Pictures’ Calculus Creative Content EIS Fund. Buchanan, producer on Netflix’s Primetime Emmy-nominated and BAFTA-winning international phenomenon “The End of The F***ing World,” and McGhee, producer of BAFTA-nominated and Berlin FIPRESCI winner “Mogul Mowgli,” partnered to seek out and develop new voices from under-represented communities, focusing on, but not limited to, filmmakers of color and women.
“This is an exhilarating moment for Home Team,” the two shared in the release. “Jess joins us at this early and vital stage of the company, bringing her creative acumen, exceptional taste and desire to tell stories from exciting under-represented filmmakers, that is at the core of Home Team. She will be a key part of the team, and we could not be more delighted!”
