UK-headquartered Sky Studios has expanded the remit for chief content officer Jane Millichip, giving her oversight of content across all of Sky’s European markets.
Millichip (pictured) was appointed chief commercial officer for Sky Studios upon its formation in 2019, moving from her role as managing director at Sky Vision, which morphed into Sky Studios when the sales and distribution arm of the company was transferred to NBCUniversal Global Distribution that year.
Millichip will take on responsibility for all scripted teams across Europe, with oversight for Sky Studios’ commercial work in documentary and factual projects, including international deficit funding and production partnerships.
Marcus Ammon and Nils Hartmann, Sky Studios’ leadership in Germany and Italy, will now report to Millichip.
“Marcus and Nils are both exceptional talents, deeply respected by the industry and with strong creative instincts; understanding what our customers want and value, both in Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia, and across the group,” wrote outgoing Sky Studios CEO Gary Davey in an internal note seen by Realscreen. “They have each built strong teams as well as bold and creatively ambitious slates. I would personally like to thank both of them for all they have delivered for Sky so far. Though, of course, they both know me well enough to know that I will quickly follow my thanks with ‘full steam ahead!’ I am excited to see them and their content teams thrive in this new structure.”
