As part of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s commitment to indigenous programming abroad, Andy House has been tapped VP of production, Asia, for Columbia TriStar Intl. Television.
House will relocate to Hong Kong to supervise production of series and telefilms for the region, with a focus on production for China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. The production group in that region is headed by Dewy Ip, senior VP, international channels, Asia.
“The recent rollout of the AXN channel, coupled with local co-production ventures, demonstrates our company’s recognition of the tremendous opportunities in the Asian market,” Andy Kaplan, exec VP, Columbia TriStar TV Group, said.
House has served as production VP for Columbia TriStar TV for six years, working on both longform projects and series.
