BBC Studios Bolsters America Team With Janet Brown & Tara Maitra Hire – Deadline

BBC Studios has bolstered its U.S. offering following a year of record growth by signing Gunpowder & Sky’s Janet Brown and promoting Tara Maitra.

Brown becomes President, Content Distribution, North America and Latin America, for which she will set the strategic direction for BBC Studios’ commercial divisions across the regions, working with U.S. partners and streamers.

Maitra, who joined last year, will have oversight of global syndication and ad sales, including digital news properties and the World News TV channel. Global syndication and advertising sales will therefore be brought together for the first time under one leader to unlock further growth.
