Shed Media Group shuffles U.S., U.K. managers

Pamela Healey to g.m. of U.S. arm; Nick Emmerson to head Ricochet

Shed Media Group has restructured its management ranks, tapping Pamela Healey as the U.S. branch’s general manager while Shed Media U.S. prexy Nick Emmerson will relocate across the Pond to serve as CEO of Ricochet TV, the Group’s U.K. shingle. Both report to Shed Media Group CEO Nick Southgate.

Healey joins Shed from High Noon Entertainment, where she served as exec veep of development for the West Coast branch of the reality production company and spearheaded series including VH1’s “Tough Love” and TLC’s “Cake Boss.”

As g.m. of Shed Media U.S., Healey will oversee development and production of unscripted projects, as well as formats brought to Shed’s Stateside branch from its overseas constituents. Series from Shed Media U.S. include “The Real Housewives of New York City,” “Who Do You Think You Are?” and “Basketball Wives.”

In his new post as CEO of Ricochet, Emmerson, who co-created global reality show “Supernanny,” will lead the U.K. team as it develops new unscripted content and fosters existing series. He also will continue to co-run Shed Media U.S. with Healey.

At Ricochet, Emmerson replaces the shingle founder and current CEO Nick Powell, who will transition to chief creative officer of the company. Ricochet is responsible for programs including “Cowboy Builders,” “Michel Roux’s Service” and “Mastercrafts and Blood.”

Healey is “a creative entrepreneur who is at home in both the editing room and the boardroom,” Southgate said. “Nick Emmerson has done an outstanding job for Shed Media in the U.S. I’m delighted he has agreed to come back to the U.K. to run Ricochet while continuing to co-manage Shed U.S. with Pam. I think that continuity and the strength of the U.K.-U.S. axis will help grow our business on both sides of the Atlantic.”
