In her new role, Kristin Jones will focus on identifying potential international scripted projects, including co-productions, format adaptations, series and limited-series acquisitions, AMC said today. She’s responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with broadcasters, cable networks and producers in all territories outside of the U.S. to bring projects to the network. “We couldn’t be more excited about working with Kristin to identify compelling international content that is right for AMC,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s EVP of original programming, production and digital content. “Domestic TV viewers have become intimately aware over the last several years that good ideas and content can come from anywhere in the world, and we plan to aggressively seek out and pursue these opportunities, with Kristin solely focused on driving our efforts.”
Jones most recently served as CCO for Michael Eisner multi-platform digital studio Vuguru. She previously served as SVP of international development, production and acquisitions for Miramax Films and VP of production and European acquisitions for Buena Vista International, based in London. She began her career as a film literary agent at ICM. Jones’ international projects include Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, and Oscar-winning films Tsotsi and The Queen.
