Endemol Shine’s Asia MD lands at The Story Lab

Endemol Shine’s former Asia MD Fotini Paraskakis has joined The Story Lab as executive VP of entertainment, overseeing scripted and unscripted.

Paraskakis finished her term with Endemol Shine this summer, after it was revealed that there would be a rejig in its Asia division late last year.

Endemol Shine Asia’s CEO of international operations Nicole Bamford will now oversee all business across Asia as a result of the move. Production out of Singapore will also cease to exist.

Paraskakis will work with producers, platforms, and broadcasters at The Story Lab and report into its president Michael Iskas.

The Story Lab slate include Game of Clones, Hall Pass and All Star Driving School.

“Fotini, with her extensive entertainment background and proven track record, will be spearheading our TV offering, surrounded by our talented acquisitions, development, sales and marketing teams around the world,” said Ikas.

Paraskakis added: “I am extremely excited to be part of such a passionate team, supporting content globally. With so many new platforms around the world, the opportunities for innovative and disruptive content are endless. The Story Lab has the ability to engage directly with creators to bring these ideas to life, offering a fresh perspective to end users and viewers.”
