Wolf, who spent six years at the National Geographic Channel working in both global acquisitions and international programming/development, will focus on developing content that fits SRP’s 25-year history of producing hit shows for both primetime and daytime television. Her responsibilities will also include strengthening relationships with domestic and international networks, distributors and production partners.
“Steph has hit the ground running. She has already made an impact in both opening doors with new cable networks and proving her understanding of the international distribution business. We are thrilled to have her here,” Rotfeld said in making the announcement. “SRP has recently concluded distribution deals with Electus, Sky Vision and Tricon and Stephanie has been instrumental in moving them forward.”
