Gaumont International Television Adds Three New Executives
The studio staffs up for its new series "Barbarella," as well as second seasons of NBC's "Hannibal" and Netflix original "Hemlock Grove."
PARIS -- Gaumont International Television (GIT), the new L.A.-based small screen arm of the French mini-major studio Gaumont, has announced three key executive hires.
With both NBC's Hannibal and Netflix's Hemlock Grove renewed and the highly anticipated Nicolas Winding Refn-helmed Barbarella going into production for CanalPlus, GIT is gearing up for a successful second season.
Carol Trussell has been brought on as head of production, Adam Fishbach will join as supervisor of creative affairs, and Mary Carol Bulger has been named director of production administration.
The announcement was made today by GIT CEO Katie O'Connell.
Trussell, who produced Hannibal's freshman season, will now oversee production of Barbarella starting in early 2014. She'll also continue to oversee Hannibal as well as Eli Roth's horror series Hemlock Grove. TV vet Trussell previously produced episodes of Roswell, What About Brian and True Blood.
Fishbach, a former Chris Morgan Productions vp, will be responsible for new series development. He previously developed Gang Related for Fox and Big Thunder for ABC.
Bulger most recently worked as production/distribution administrator at Exclusive Media Group and will coordinate the company's productions.
The new hires will be based in Los Angeles.
