Goldsack, whose credits at Burning Bright include ITV’s Joanna Lumley’s Home Sweet Home and BBC’s When Ruby Wax Met…, becomes EVP Development at the Tinopolis-owned production company.
He replaces Joel Zimmer, who previously held the position at the company.
Goldsack will head up the development team, oversee all development across the entire company and report directly to co-CEOs Jo Sharon and Casey Kriley.

“It’s an absolute honor to join such a groundbreaking team at Magical Elves,” Goldsack said. “I’ve long been a fan of their authentic and uplifting first-to-market content, and I can’t wait to announce all the innovative projects we’re dreaming up together.”
“Adding Dan to our team was a no-brainer,” added Sharon and Kriley. “With his prolific track record and expertise in developing nonfiction content that leaves a lasting impact on viewers, we are privileged to welcome him as our newest team member and are excited for what’s to come.”
