Hulu has announced the promotion of Beth Osisek to the position of vice president, original documentaries and limited series.
Osisek (pictured) reports to Belisa Balaban, Hulu Originals’ head of unscripted and documentaries, and brings decades of experience as a filmmaker and producer to her new role. Since joining Hulu, Osisek has worked across documentaries and series like Hillary, I Am Greta, Taste The Nation and The D’Amelio Show.
Osisek’s roots are as an award-winning journalist and filmmaker who got her start during the fall of the Soviet Union as a Moscow-based producer. During her career, she’s worked for ABC News and The Christian Science Monitor, reporting on stories from human trafficking to celebrity profiles.
Her recent work includes the three-part docu-series Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates, which she produced with Oscar-winning director Davis Guggenheim; CNN Films’ We Will Rise with Michelle Obama; and the PBS documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make History.
She also produced the feature documentary, 2013′s Girl Rising, which follows nine girls from nine countries, highlighting the effect that girls’ education in a developing nation can have on not only the girl herself but also on her community and her country.
“I’ve admired Beth’s work as a producer for many years and it’s been my great pleasure to work with her at Hulu. She brings amazing firsthand experience to supporting our filmmakers and identifying stories our audiences will love,” said Balaban in a statement.
Hulu also appointed Ashley Chang to vice president, content development, drama, Hulu Originals. She was previously director of drama for Hulu Originals.
