Greg Goldman, president and executive producer at Studio Lambert USA, has left the production studio after five years at the helm.
“I want to thank Greg for the many ways he has driven our business in the U.S., especially overseeing the launch of the celebrity version of Undercover Boss, which recently completed a strong first season on CBS,” said company founder and CEO Stephen Lambert in a statement. “Greg wants to pursue new challenges and I wish him great success in the future.”
Prior to joining the All3Media-backed indie in 2013, Goldman (pictured left) held an overall deal with eOne-owned firm Renegade 83 and was EVP of development and current at RDF USA. Before that, he was an executive at ABC with oversight for such reality series as the Lambert-created Wife Swap.
Jack Burgess (right), who in April transferred from the company’s London headquarters to be SVP of development and current in Los Angeles, will assume acting responsibility for the company’s business in the U.S.
Burgess will work closely alongside Lambert in the new role.
Burgess had served as head of UK unscripted development since 2014, responsible for devising new ideas and managing Studio Lambert’s development through the sales process to UK networks.
Prior to Studio Lambert, Burgess was head of development at NBCUniversal International Studios and Fever Media, developing a range of factual and entertainment formats.
“I am excited Jack is in a position to take on acting responsibility for developing the U.S. side of our company,” says Lambert. “We have enjoyed considerable success recently in the UK, both in scripted and unscripted, and now I want to focus on developing further our American business. Jack’s experience of running development in the UK will help us to join up the two sides of our company.”
Studio Lambert’s UK unscripted division is currently producing Channel 4′s reality series The Circle, which will launch later this year, as well as the 12th season of C4′s ratings hit Gogglebox.
