ITV Global Entertainment’s Janet Robinson (pictured) is set to join Zodiak Rights this month, with the remit to sell finished unscripted titles to the U.S. and Canada.
As VP of sales and Acquisitions for North America, Robinson will be based in Zodiak’s LA office, and will report to and work alongside Glen Hansen, SVP of sales, acquisitions and co-productions for North America.
Hansen – who has secured content partnerships including T-Group Productions, Asylum Entertainment, Langley Productions, and Phil Keoghan’s production company NOW Productions – will continue to handle scripted and format sales, unscripted coproductions and third-party producer acquisitions and partnerships.
Robinson spent seven years at ITV Global Entertainment’s LA and London offices, where she managed sales and programming revenues across North America. Her most recent credit was managing ITV GE’s distribution partnership with Animal Planet/Discovery Enterprises.
“Janet’s knowledge and experience managing sales revenues for strong entertainment and factual brands will be invaluable as we expand our business activities in North America,” said Hansen.
