Nne Ebong has been assigned to help lead deals relating to original series, while ITN CEO Anna Mallet was chosen to contribute to the physical production for U.K, EMEA regions.
Netflix’s recently appointed head of global TV, Bela Bajaria, has added to her leadership team by hiring Nne Ebong, who will serve as the new Vice President for overall original series deals. ITN CEO Anna Mallet was also chosen to serve as the Vice President of Physical Productions in the UK and EMEA regions.
Ebong's new duties will consist of working in collaboration with Netflix’s recently established overall deals team, led by Brian Wright. Wright was recently appointed to his current position, through which he leads consolidated young-adult and family series into the drama and comedy groups. Among the deals the team will work with are that of Ryan Murphy, Shawn Levy's 21 Laps Entertainment, and The Duffer Brothers.
Mallett will lead the Netflix production management team across these regions for live-action series, non-fiction and film. She will be based in London, reporting to VP of physical production Ty Warren. She originally joined ITN in April 2019 having previously been MD of production at BBC Studios. The hire marks yet another major coup for Netflix, which has steadily been snapping up U.K. talent in recent months. Most recently, the streamer hired producer Fiona Lamptey for the U.K. features role. “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,” Warren said.
Ebong previously worked as the independent TV studio wiip where she served as Creative Lead, led by former BBC executive and ABC network entertainment president Paul Lee, having joined the CAA-backed company in 2018. Before Wiip, Ebong had served as senior VP of drama development at ABC Studios since 2013, having joined the Disney-owned company in 2006. Mallett joins from UK production company ITN Productions where she is currently CEO and will lead production management across the regions for live-action series, unscripted, and film. Before joining ITN, Mallett was a chief operating officer and managing director, production, at BBC Studios, and Boston Consulting Group.
