Canada’s CBC adds Walton to exec roster

He'll be exec director of commissioned and scripted shows

TORONTO — The CBC has tapped former Echo Bridge Entertainment production exec Trevor J. Walton as executive director of commissioned and scripted programming for its English services, the Canadian pubcaster announced Monday.

The appointment is effective immediately.

CBC English Services executive VP Kirstine Stewart said in a statement that Walton’s breath of experience across a wide range of creative development and production is “an excellent fit with our current strategic plan … which is all about delivering great Canadian content across all of our platforms.”

Walton began his career in the U.K., and most recently was an exec producer of “The Amanda Knox Story” (A&E Lifetime). As Lifetime Television’s senior VP, he oversaw development and production of the miniseries “Human Trafficking,” and has held senior exec jobs with the U.K.’s Witzsend Prods., and Fox Network and CBS in the U.S.

“CBC as a national public broadcaster has the strong, successful and engaging platforms to showcase Canadian programming,” Walton commented in a statement. “I look forward to working from those positions of strength to create programs that will resonate with audiences here and tell those Canadian stories elsewhere.”
