Her development credits include TLC’s Something Borrowed Something New and Bride by Design; CW’s Hatched; CBS’ Recipe Rehab; AOL’s Making a Scene with James Franco; and History’s Crossroads of History.

Prior to joining Trium, Kordestani served as VP of development at Tijuana Entertainment and director of development at Reveille Studios.
