La Brea and The Missing producer Keshet Studios has appointed NBC’s SVP of drama development to work across its TV slate.
Lisa Roos becomes EVP of television at Keshet Studios, which is US-based production arm of producer & distributor Keshet International. She will focus on developing original IP across both limited and returning series, reporting into Keshet Studios’ president Peter Traugott.
Roos was most recently overseeing scripted development for La Brea broadcaster NBC, where she worked alongside Keshet Studios on several projects in development, as part of the studio’s ongoing production pact with Universal Television.
Prior to that, Roos spent 15 years at Warner Bros. Television, spending the last four developing dramas, comedies, mini-series and TV movies for cable/streaming platforms at cable and streamer-focused Warner Horizon. Her credits include Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Emergence, Ordinary Joe, The Vampire Diaries and You.
Aside from NBC’s La Brea, Keshet Studios is co-producing David E Kelley’s The Missing for Peacock with Universal Television (UTV). The two companies are also co-developing several projects for various buyers, including After School Special, Ties That Bind, and The Stuntwoman.
Traugott said: “We had such a great experience with her while she was at NBC and look forward to continuing the relationship. She will be a big asset to our team.”
Roos added: “Keshet has a history of bringing quality scripted programming to global audiences and I’m looking forward to building on its success.”
