Entertainment One PLC (LON:ETO), the company behind Peppa Pig, has confirmed Mark Gordon will step down as president and chief content officer of film and television.

The announcement follows reports that the Hollywood veteran was being pushed out due to conflict with the FTSE 250 company.

Gordon, who has produced blockbusters including 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Steve Jobs', will continue to develop and produce content for eOne. During his time at eOne, he has created 'Designated Survivor' and 'The Rookie'.

Steve Bertram, eOne’s president of film and television, will take full control over the day-to-day management of eOne’s film and TV business.

Gordon joined eONe on a five-year deal in February 2018 after the British-Canadian firm bought his Los-Angeles based production group, The Mark Gordon Company, which was behind hit medical drama Grey’s Anatomy.

"In today's rapidly expanding market, content has become the greatest differentiator and Mark Gordon is one of the best content producers in the business,” eOne chief executive Darren Throop said on Friday.

“Our shift towards content production has continued to bear fruit and position eOne for ongoing success across film and television.

“We believe our position in the market will be even stronger with Mark solely focused on creating content for eOne and look forward to working together for years to come."
