ITV Studios America, the U.S. scripted division of the British broadcaster, has promoted Joey Kern to VP of Production, while Kimberly Rosenblum has been upped to VP of Business Affairs, Deadline reported. Both executives, who were previously directors, are now reporting to Dwayne Shattuck, EVP of Production; and Tom Lane, EVP of Business and Legal Affairs at ITV Studios America, respectively.

Kern and Rosenblum will work across the company’s scripted portfolio, which includes its internal slate as well as joint ventures and partners including “Snowpiercer” producer Tomorrow Studios, and “10-Year-Old Tom” producer Work Friends
