London-based Arrow International Media has named Stephanie Mavropoulos (pictured, right) and Carrie Pennifer (left) to the newly-created positions of co-head of production.

Mavropoulos joined Arrow when it was formed in 2011, and has led its production teams for more than a decade. She pioneered the production style behind shows such as American Monster, See No Evil and Body Cam. She works across Arrow’s flagship feature-length crime series, Mind of a Monster and is responsible for notable series such as the two-hour event documentary Live From Space for Channel 4 and National Geographic, as well as the BBC2 and Smithsonian coproduction 747: The Plane That Changed The World.

Pennifer joined Arrow in 2012 as production manager on the Discovery series Ultimate Warfare. She went on to manage numerous successful series and one-offs, including three seasons of the observational doc Ultimate Airport Dubai for National Geographic before being made production executive in 2016. During her near decade at Arrow, she has been involved in Arrow Media’s and Arrow Pictures’ entire slate of projects, simultaneously overseeing up to 70 hours in production as well as those in development.

Working across both Arrow Media and Arrow Pictures, each of the new roles will have its own balanced slate across factual series, feature documentaries, films and podcasts. The co-heads of production will report directly to managing director, Iain Pelling.

“Production is the beating heart of Arrow and works side-by-side with our creative team,” said Pelling in a statement. “It enables us to make over 100 hours of high-quality content every year, and this number is growing. These new roles will enable us to accelerate the growth of the business, innovate and find new ways of doing things, and better navigate the changing landscape.”
