Claudia Rosencrantz, Veteran UK Executive Behind ‘Got Talent’ & ‘Idol,’ Exits Producer Studio 1

EXCLUSIVE: Claudia Rosencrantz, the British television executive who first greenlit the Got Talent and Idol franchises for ITV, has left production outfit Studio 1.

Rosencrantz co-founded Studio 1 in 2018 with Adrian Woolfe after they previously worked together to turn Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? into a global phenomenon.

Woolfe said Rosencrantz was “pursuing other opportunities” but would continue to collaborate on Studio 1 shows if they are taken to series.

Studio 1’s development slate has included Kevin Bacon-fronted quiz show Lucky 13 and The Imposter, a game show fronted by British presenter Rob Rinder.

Studio 1 was also behind LIT, a CNN-style entertainment news network that streamed across YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Rosencrantz and Woolfe met more than 20 years ago through the development of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. Rosencrantz commissioned the show for ITV, while Woolfe was instrumental in growing the format into a global brand as the managing director of Celador International.

Rosencrantz is credited with commissioning Simon Cowell franchises Got Talent and The X Factor. She was also behind I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
