Kristin Jones, who has been running international programming for AMC since 2014, has added SundanceTV to her purview, and now will oversee international programming and co-productions across both AMC and SundanceTV in an SVP role. She continues to report to Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV. In addition, Chris Loveall has joined as vice president, international programming for AMC and SundanceTV, reporting to Jones.
Based in New York, Jones has played an integral role in bringing notable titles to AMC, such as The Night Manager miniseries, which recently received 12 Emmy nominations, and critically praised Humans, which is returning for Season 2 next year. Since joining AMC, Jones has been focused on international scripted projects. Prior to joining AMC, Jones served as chief creative officer for Vuguru. Before that, she served as senior vice president of international development, production and acquisitions for Miramax Films in New York, and prior to that, she was vice president of production and European acquisitions for Buena Vista International, based in London. She began her career as a film literary agent at ICM.
Loveall is based in Los Angeles and is responsible for the development and acquisitions of international programming and co-productions for both networks. Prior to joining AMC and SundanceTV, Loveall served as vice president of original programming at Pivot. Before that, he held a number of programming-focused positions at ABC Signature Studios, The CW, and other production companies.
“This team has done an amazing job moving AMC quickly into the international programming space, and building on the wonderful track record that SundanceTV had established,” said Stillerman. “There is so much great writing and producing talent around the world, and we’re truly looking forward to expanding our existing relationships, building new ones, and continuing to find the best stories and most original voices.”
