Former CBS topper to be non-executive director

Former CBS Network Television Group prexy Nancy Tellem has been appointed a non-executive director of the U.K.’s All3Media.

All3Media CEO Steve Morrison hailed Tellem, who remains at CBS as a consultant, as “one of America’s most distinguished media executives.”

He added, “She brings a wealth of experience in broadcasting, TV production, digital media, international partnership and co-production. I am sure her wise counsel will be invaluable as we grow in America and worldwide.”

All3Media is the subject of intense bid speculation because it’s the only U.K. “super-indie” not to have been bought by a third party.

Possible buyers include ITV, which wants to beef up production, and U.S. studios.

All3Media’s shows include high-profile dramas “Shameless” and “Skins,” both being remade Stateside.
