Rian Johnson’s T-Street indie studio has named Nena Rodrigue as its president of television, giving her creative oversight of all TV projects.
T-Street is led by Johnson and producer Ram Bergman.
Rodrigue was most recently executive vice president of programming and production for BBC America and worked closely on series like “Killing Eve” and “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.” Prior to her time at BBC America, Rodrigue served as senior vice president of programming and production for AMC Networks’ Sundance TV, overseeing development and production of “Rectify,” “The Returned” and “The Honourable Woman.”
“We are super excited to have Nena join our team,” Johnson and Bergman said. “Her proven track record overseeing high-quality content, keen eye for artistic vision, and support for budding creators will help T-Street as we continue to grow the company.”
Johnson and Bergman recently completed “Knives Out” through T-Street, which is being released in theaters on Nov. 27. MRC parent Valence Media has a minority equity stake in T-Street.
“I have long been a fan of Rian and Ram’s astounding, innovative work over many years and am thrilled to help them build the studio,” Rodrigue said. “I believe we will be impactful by applying their principles in television and supporting other artists in bringing fresh and original work to TV.”
