Amazon Studios’ Europe boss, Georgia Brown, is to step down from her role after five years, according to reports in Variety.

During her tenure, Brown ordered shows including Clarkson’s Farm, Good Omens and The Grand Tour out of the UK.

An internal memo from Amazon Studios boss Jennifer Salke and head of international James Farrell, said: “Since joining Amazon in 2017 Georgia has grown the team from a single person to now a fantastic organization poised for continued growth in seven different country offices spread across the continent.

“While the volume of local original titles launching each year continues to increase, under Georgia’s guidance the team has remained steadfast in our commitment to a curated approach, where we are working hand-in-hand with our European producing partners on every project to create the highest quality content and maintaining the strongest relationships with the production community and talent across the region. Quite an accomplishment to say the least,” Salke and Farrell continued.

Variety is reporting that the European Amazon Studios set up will remain with a search for a replacement for Brown now underway with no major restructure expected.

Brown’s memo to staff said: “To the EU Originals team: you are outstanding. The best in the business. Your commitment and drive to raise the bar has delivered exceptional, award winning and genre defining series and movies in the last 5 years, and will continue to do so for many more.”

“The impact of the content and talent you continue to deliver for our customers is not just felt across Europe but around the world and I cannot wait for more of our incredible shows to deliver over the coming months. These titles simply wouldn’t be what they are without your attention to detail, high ambition and dedication so I want to thank you all for such outstanding work.”
