Netflix has hired ITN CEO Anna Mallett to run its production management team in the UK and local language production across Europe, Middle East and Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. She will oversee live-action series, nonfiction and film.

Based in London, she will report into VP, Physical Production Ty Warren.

Ty Warren said: “Anna brings a wealth of global production experience and strategic expertise to our production team as we continue to expand our investment in original programming throughout the world. I’m excited to work with her as we continue to stand up our productions and position the Netflix studio for its next stage of growth and success.”

Mallett said: “I am thrilled to be joining Netflix at this exciting time as the company continues to accelerate its production of great stories from all over the world. Netflix is a creative powerhouse, and I am looking forward to working with my exceptional new colleagues across the UK, EMEA, LATAM and APAC to bring the very best films and series to audiences everywhere.”

Mallett became CEO of ITN in April last year. Before that she was COO of BBC Studios and has also been CEO of BBC Studios and Post Production (now BBC Studioworks).
