Wayne Garvie Named President of International Production for Sony Pictures TV

Wayne Garvie has been upped to president of international production for Sony Pictures Television.

Based in London, Garvie will oversee all international TV production and Sony’s 20 joint production ventures around the world. He’ll report to Sony Pictures Entertainment chairman-CEO Tony Vinciquerra.

“Wayne has been a strong leader, galvanizing our international production team with his energy, enthusiasm and creativity without missing a beat,” said Vinciquerra. “We look forward to growing this important line of business for SPE with Wayne officially at the helm.”

Garvie succeeds Andrea Wong in the role as international TV production chief. Wong exited in February after six years in the post. Sony TV’s international arm is the home of Netflix’s “The Crown,” the upcoming BBC/Amazon series “A Very English Scandal” and numerous local-language productions based on Sony TV library shows.

Garvie was previously Sony TV’s chief creative officer of international production. He joined the studio in 2012 from the U.K.’s All3Media, where he was managing director of international production, focusing on the U.S. market.

Garvie’s appointment completes the overhaul of Sony Pictures TV’s senior management under Vinciquerra, who came to the studio in June. After former TV chiefs Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg left to launch the video division at Apple, Vinciquerra promoted three executives — Jeff Frost, Jason Clodfelter, and Chris Parnell — to run the domestic production arm.
