Raw TV Ups Adam Hawkins to Exec VP of U.S. TV (EXCLUSIVE)

Leading TV production company Raw TV has promoted former senior VP of development, Adam Hawkins, to the newly created role of executive VP of U.S. television.

The expanded position sees him joining Raw’s senior leadership and creative team, and working alongside Sam Maynard, the company’s executive VP of U.S. factual programming, and James Bates, senior VP and executive producer of the company’s hit show “Gold Rush.” Together the team is tasked with continuing to grow Raw’s U.S. business on the back of multiple new series airing over the next six months.

Hawkins will continue to work across the business’s U.S. unscripted slate and will also oversee some key projects through production as an executive producer. In addition, he will work alongside the existing scripted team to expand Raw’s U.S. slate, which includes the upcoming series “Harley and the Davidsons” (Discovery).

Hawkins has developed a series of recent commissions, including “Race for the White House” (CNN), “No Man Left Behind” (Nat Geo), “Two in a Million” (TLC), “Women in Prison” (Investigation Discovery), “Harley and the Davidsons” and “Homestead Rescue” (both Discovery).

Maynard, Bates and Hawkins will continue to report to CEO Joely Fether and the company’s founder, Dimitri Doganis.

“I’m delighted to be working at the heart of such a vibrant, creative and inspiring company as Raw TV. I’m really excited about the shows we have coming up across a wide variety of genres: factual formats, documentaries and scripted series,” Hawkins said.

“Adam is not only the best attuned development brain I’ve ever worked with on either side of the Atlantic; he’s also a great strategic brain with a deep understanding of the different networks and distinct audiences. He combines that with being collaborative and collegiate and a great guy to work with,” Doganis said.
