New York-based TV prodco Left/Right Productions, a Red Arrow company, has promoted key executives Mary Robertson and Pete Ross to senior production and development roles.

Roberts (pictured, left) is now senior vice president of current production after nearly nine years at Left/Right, most recently as co-executive producer.

Her recent credits include directing and executive producing the docuseries Tricky Dick, premiering on CNN this year; co-directing the feature doc Trumped; executive producing the Showtime series The Circus; and writing and directing multiple episodes of PBS’ ‘Frontline’, including the Emmy-nominated The Middle School Moment and The Education of Omarina.

Meanwhile, Ross (right) has been upped to SVP of development.

Since joining Left/Right in 2014, he and the development team have created and sold projects including The Zoo and two forthcoming spin-off series for Animal Planet, Biography: The Trump Dynasty for A&E, First Family of Hip Hop for Bravo, TruInside for truTV, Generation X for Nat Geo, a forthcoming film for the ‘History 100′ doc strand at History, and more.

“We are proud of many accomplishments at Left/Right, but none more so than our ability to attract and retain smart and creative storytellers and developers such as Mary and Pete, who have helped us to earn and maintain our reputation for making great shows,” said Left/Right co-founders Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver, in a joint statement.
