Apple taps Gaumont’s head of production

Apple’s Worldwide Video Programming division has hired veteran production exec Carol Trussell as head of production.

Trussell will start her new role in March 2018. She arrives from Gaumont Television where she has served as head of production since 2013.

The exec oversaw hit productions such as Narcos, Hannibal, Hemlock Grove and F is for Family for Gaumont.

Trussell is Apple’s latest well-known hire, which the company has been tallying up since its initial programming move in summer 2017. Apple kicked off the appointments by appointing Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg as head of production.

The company has also picked up shows from Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Damien Chazelle and two from Reese Witherspoon.
