Naomi Joseph has left her role as executive director of international scripted programming at Endemol, TBI has learned.
Endemol confirmed the personnel change. There will not be a like-for-like replacement, a spokesman said.
Her responsibilities have been divided between Iris Boelhouwer who is based in Amsterdam and heads Endemol’s global creative operations and Anna Langenberg, the company’s London-based head of format distribution.
Before Endemol, Jospeh was at Disney for two years, running the formats team and working across scripted and unscripted properties and prior to that served a twelve-year stint as executive VP, worldwide drama at FremantleMedia.
Endemol’s scripted series include Dutch crime drama Penoza, which ABC adapted as Red Widow in the US; BBC One drama Ripper Street; forthcoming BBC Two period drama Peaky Blinders and BBC3’s youth-skewed comedy Bad Education.
Endemol also has a US scripted operation, Endemol Studios, which Philippe Maigret and Jeremy Gold run. That unit is behind shows such as AMC’s remake of British crime drama Low Winter Sun.
