Exec to nurture new international shows

LONDON — Sony Pictures Television has tapped U.K. entertainment specialist Victoria Ashbourne to help build its international presence.

As senior vice president, creative development, international production, Ashbourne is charged with nurturing new shows across all of SPT’s international companies.

Additionally her responsibilities will include re-developing the outfit’s back catalog and helping to spearhead production in the U.K.
