Chris Stewart

Zodiak Rights, the international division of Zodiak Media, announced a key hire for the newly created role of Head of Scripted Acquisitions. Chris Stewart has been appointed from BBC Worldwide where he held the position of Head of Drama.

This appointment follows Caroline Torrance joining Zodiak Rights earlier this year in the new role of Head of Scripted, leading Zodiak Rights’ scripted sales and acquisitions strategy whilst working with in-house and external producers around the world to develop international drama and comedy co-productions such as the recently launched at MIPCOM Occupied for TV2 (Norway) and Arte (France).

Stewart will join Zodiak Rights in early December and report into Torrance.
