Among the international execs previously announced for INTV are Cindy Holland, the former CEO of Britain's Channel 4 and now head of original programming at Netflix; Wonderhood Studio founder David Abraham; uber-producer Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash); UnREAL writer/producer Stacy Rukeyser; Carmi Zlotnik, president of programming at Starz; and Jan Mojto, CEO of Beta Film, the production company behind Babylon Berlin.
