Philadelphia-based indie prodco Lumiere Media has tapped Stephanie Wolf for its newly created director of programming role.

Most recently National Geographic Channels International’s regional programming manager, Wolf will now be charged with driving content strategy, development and sales for Lumiere.

She will particularly focus on development of the company’s slate, and on strengthening relationships with domestic and international networks, distributors and production partners.

Lumiere is the prodco behind Tomorrow is Today for Cinemax, The Wereth Eleven for National Geographic Channel, and Someone To Love: the HPV Epidemic, a collaboration with singer Vanessa Williams.

“Stephanie’s vision for the type of content she wants to offer to viewers worldwide is perfectly in line with Lumiere Media’s goal to illuminate the world with powerful stories that celebrates the triumph of the human spirit,” said Frederic Lumiere, founder of Lumiere Media. “She is a force to be reckoned with and has extensive experience in acquisitions, programming and development for a global networks group.”
