NBC Universal International Thursday named Denise O’Donoghue president of International Television Productions.
London-based O’Donoghue, co-founder and former chief executive of independent production company Hat Trick, will begin work in her new position on Sept. 14, the company announced on Thursday.
O’Donoghue worked on such shows as “Have I Got News for You” and “The Kumars at No. 42” and fits within NBCU’s plans to grow internationally.
As head of the international production division, O’Donoghue will lead television productions and strategic TV content partnerships across all territories outside the U.S. She will be responsible for driving NBC Universal’s international growth through a combination of more local production and new business projects, the company said.
