Ex-TOWIE boss joins Big Brother 2017 as executive producer

Endemol Shine UK has hired a former boss of ITVBe’s The Only Way Is Essex as a new executive producer for Big Brother 2017.

Louise Hutchinson is joining the Channel 5 show from Lime Pictures, where she briefly oversaw TOWIE and was a series editor on E4’s Celebs Go Dating.

Her prior credits include Sky1’s Got To Dance and ITV’s The Biggest Loser.

Hutchinson will be one of three executive producers on this summer’s Big Brother, alongside returning chiefs Andrew Jackman – also a former TOWIE exec – and Rebecca Kenny-Smith.

She replaces Richard Greenwood, who worked on January’s ‘All Stars’ and ‘New Stars’ Celebrity edition.

The trio will work alongside Katy Manley, who became the show’s sole creative director last year.

Today Channel 5 confirmed plans to launch Big Brother during the first week of June, meaning it will clash with the general election.

But that may be a deliberate move, as it was announced last week that the new series will have a political theme, with housemates from various backgrounds coming together for a ‘culture clash’ in the ‘ultimate social experiment’.

This ‘alternative look’ at the UK is represented with a new eye logo based on the Union Jack flag, while the house has also had a very British makeover.
