Wood previously was president of creative affairs and development at CBS Television Distribution, where she developed and produced such shows as Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray, The Insider and The Doctors. She also was in charge of production of current CTD series, such as Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, Judge Judy and Judge Joe Brown.
"I have known and admired Terry for many years," said Burnett in a statement. "She is a personal friend and a top-level producer with an unparalleled track record of success with quality programming-which is very important in differentiating television storytelling today. She is a perfect fit for One Three as we expand our business into 2013."
"I've known Mark for years and am thrilled to join his team at One Three," said Wood. "He has more hits on television than anyone. I've been looking for the perfect place to start the next chapter of my career and this is absolutely the right fit because I care about producing quality shows."
Last May, One Three Media hired HBO's Anne Thomopoulos to run its scripted division. This spring, that division will premiere its first effort, The Bible, which was produced by Burnett and his wife, Roma Downey, and will air on History.
"We're intent on growing the reach and capabilities of One Three," said Scott Sassa, president of Hearst Entertainment & Syndication, also in a statement. "We are extremely serious and excited about our future. Anne's hiring was the first key step in that process and Terry coming aboard is another."
