Working to Tin Roof Media’s Group Director of Operations, Ulla Streib, Jones will be responsible for all legal and business affairs for Blink and Outline across the group’s production bases in London and Chepstow.
Jones joins Tin Roof Media from her role as Senior Legal Counsel for Warner Bros.

I’m delighted to have Charisma joining us: she combines high quality experience with the ability to grow with the group as it expands.”
Charisma Jones said: “I am really excited to join Tin Roof Media at such a pivotal time for the business due to the growth of the group and ever-expanding slate of diverse projects across both its labels. Funding and producing content is becoming increasingly complex, and I look forward to setting up their legal infrastructure as their first in-house business affairs support to provide the team with all the tools they need to continue making great shows!”
Tin Roof Media chairman Rod Henwood added: “Tin Roof Media’s growth is currently accelerating, as its two companies expand both the number of shows in production and their roster of clients – as well as putting together an increasing number of international coproductions.
