Former CBC exec Nataline Rodrigues has been named director of original programming at Canada’s Rogers Media, effective from today (October 1).

Rodrigues was most recently the executive in charge of production at the CBC, overseeing series such as Arctic Air. She replaces Claire Freeland and will report to Hayden Mindell, the newly installed VP of programming and content for broadcast, who was recently promoted to replace Malcolm Dunlop.

Rodrigues will oversee the development and production of original Canadian series for Rogers Media’s non-sports TV brands.

“As Rogers Media continues to expand its successful roster of original programming, we are excited to bring aboard Nataline to further strengthen our diverse portfolio,” said Mindell in a statement.

Rogers Media’s current Canadian slate includes Package Deal, Seed, Storage Wars Canada, The Project: Guatemala, Mother Up! and The Bachelor Canada.
