Janet Brown joins the company as president, of Content Distribution, North America and Latin America (LatAm), while Tara Maitra has been promoted to chief commercial officer, Global Distribution. Brown and Maitra will be based in New York and report directly to Rebecca Glashow, CEO, of Global Distribution.

In her new role, Brown is charged with creating a vision and setting a strategic direction to drive continued growth across BBC Studios' diversified commercial business in North America and LatAm. This role includes all aspects of the content distribution business, as well as leading the company’s global distribution relationships with the top U.S.-based partners, including networks and streaming platforms, and developing innovative new business solutions to deliver growth.

“I have had the opportunity to spend the last 15 years working with some of the most fearless, ambitious, and enterprising independent entertainment companies in the business. I am honored to now have the chance to take that intrepid spirit to BBC Studios. BBC Studios’ roster of deeply resonant IP, its far-flung network of creator and buyer relationships, and its unparalleled ties into the rich British talent heritage in front and behind the camera are all pretty incredible. The company is only just beginning to bring these assets to the broader North American & Latin American market and I couldn’t be more excited to help grow the brand and the company on this side of the pond!” said Brown.
