UK indie Woodcut Media has promoted series producer Nick Mavroidakis to executive producer, while Koulla Anastasi has been upped to MD of Woodcut International.

Mavroidakis will take up his new role in January 2023 and will take the creative lead on several Woodcut franchises.

According to Woodcut: “He will work with the team to ensure the shows continue to be produced with the highest production values and continue to deliver programming for global and domestic networks.” He will also work closely with the Woodcut development team to help create new programming.

Mavroidakis joined Woodcut Media in 2016, working as a series producer on various series and specials, including the true crime docuseries Britain’s Most Evil Killers and World’s Most Evil Killers, which he created. He also produced the history series Britain’s Forgotten Wars With Tony Robinson and World’s Greatest Palaces, and factual entertainment series Animal Antics.

Prior to Woodcut Media his production credits included Rude Tube for Channel 4 for October Films, Big Brother Australia for Channel 10 for Endemol Shine Group, and Real Rescues for the BBC for Topical Television.

Anastasi, meanwhile, is taking over Woodcut’s sales operation, Woodcut International, which launched in 2020, alongside her existing role as commercial director for Woodcut Media.

Kate Beal, Founder & CEO, Woodcut Media said: “Nick has been integral part of Woodcut’s growth, creating standout unscripted programming, diligently working with cast and crew to bring the best talent to the forefront of our content. He is a real all-rounder with a populist touch.”

She added: “We are delighted to announce Koulla’s promotion which is well deserved – launching a successful distribution business in the midst of a pandemic is an outstanding achievement.”
