Red Rock Films has named Cara Biega its new vice president of creative content, where she’ll be in charge of developing a slate of original content.
A 15-year veteran with senior and consulting roles at A&E, BBC and National Geographic, Biega’s credits include time spent as head of development for National Geographic’s award-winning Explorer series, as well as executive director of development at NBC Peacock Productions. She was also a producer on BBC America’s The Best of Top Gear.
Biega had been working with Red Rock as a consultant since fall of 2020. In her new role she’ll report to Brian Armstrong, Red Rock Films president and founder, and Shannon Malone-deBenedictis, senior vice-president of development and production.
“Cara brings to Red Rock Films a strong combination of major studio know-how and imaginative storytelling passion,” said Armstrong in a release. “In the midst of our biggest year ever, with even bolder projects underway for 2022 and beyond, we are confident that Cara has the talent, skills, mind-set and energy to drive us forward.”
Biega added: “Red Rock Films has a stellar reputation, a strong commitment to great-storytelling, and a collaborative, diverse and inclusive team culture. They relentlessly strive to create the highest quality, most innovative content out there. I couldn’t wait to be a part of the team.”
Red Rock, which produced Secrets of the Whales for Disney+ and the upcoming Neftlix doc Penguin Town, is one of the world’s biggest independent producers of wildlife content.
