Kyriacou will oversee ITV Studios' international production companies, ITV Studios Global Entertainment and the company's international scripted strategy as president of International.
February 5, 2016

ITV Studios has promoted Maria Kyriacou to president of international, a newly created role.

Formerly the MD of global entertainment and Row Studios Management at ITV Studios, she will now oversee all of ITV’s international production companies – excluding ITV America – as well as ITV Studios Global Entertainment and ITV’s international scripted strategy, including ITV Studios America, under one division.

ITV Studios America’s scripted head Philippe Maigret will report to Kyriacou, and will also serve as a strategic adviser on ITV Studios’ worldwide scripted strategy.

Kyriacou will report to ITV Studios MD Julian Bellamy.

ITV’s U.S. operations are the country’s largest independent producers of unscripted content. In December, ITV named Leftfield Entertainment founder Brent Montgomery as CEO of ITV America.
