Levina Negi has been appointed to the newly-created role of head of global at LA-headquartered, international prodco Hoplite Entertainment.

Negi (pictured) will be based in London, where she will be responsible for growing Hoplite’s unscripted slate by developing and acquiring content with global appeal. Past Hoplite projects include Stable Wars and Ink Therapy.

She was formerly VP of global acquisitions and development at global prodco and distributor Fremantle. She first joined Fremantle in 2012 as coordinator of global entertainment development, working her way up through executive roles over the last nearly eight years.

“Levina is a well-respected executive who has a fantastic track record in finding content with international appeal. She’s real talent and we couldn’t be happier to have her join our expanding team. We believe that Levina will be instrumental to our expanding global footprint and strategic growth,” said Hoplite CEO Jonathan Lee Smith, in a statement. “We look forward to Levina joining us at MIPCOM as well as other markets.”

“I’m delighted to join the Hoplite Entertainment family at this fantastic stage of their growth. The company has gone from strength to strength with an already robust catalog of innovative content,” added Negi.
