Paramount Pictures has named TV distribution veteran Lisa Kramer its new executive VP of TV licensing for Europe and the Middle East, the studio announced March 14.
Previously, Kramer served as senior VP of TV licensing for Europe and the Middle East. She’ll report to Amy Reinhard, president of worldwide TV at Paramount Pictures. In her new role, Kramer will oversee TV licensing for traditional linear channels, along with subscription VOD.
