Kapital hires Fox vet for business ops

Secrets and LiesAaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment has hired Fox veteran Sandra Ortiz to oversee business affairs and production business.

Ortiz was most recently head of business affairs for Fox 21 Television Studios. She joined US-based Kapital recently and has already helped to negotiate with CBS All Access for an order of drama Tell Me a Story and YouTube Red for the comedy Widow.

“As Kapital‎ entertainment continued to grow, I had the need and desire to find a uniquely qualified person to help me run the business side of our company,” Kaplan said.

“I kept searching for a ‘Sandra Ortiz type’ and when I learned she was available, I immediately reached out to her.”

Ortiz said: “Dana Walden, Gary Newman, Howard Kurtzman and Bert Salke were all such incredible mentors. After 25 years at Fox and with this ever changing media landscape, this opportunity with Kapital was one that I just couldn’t pass up.”

Kapital Entertainment is known for TV hits such as Secrets & Lies (pictured) and Kevin From Work.
