Carrie Stein to Head Up Scripted TV at Kew Media

Fast-growing media group Kew has hired Carrie Stein to oversee its TV drama efforts. Former eOne and ICM executive Stein is a well-known face in the international scripted TV world and starts in the newly created role at Kew immediately.

Canada-based Kew Media has been on the M&A trail, buying Content Media, TCB Media Rights, and several other production and distribution businesses this year. This month it bought film and TV producer Sienna Films. Stein will work with companies in the group and third parties on new drama projects.

The new Kew recruit worked on numerous international TV series at eOne, including CBS and Shaw series “Ransom” and CBC and BET drama “The Book of Negroes.” She has also worked at 3 Arts and Alchemy Television, where she helped tee up “Ben Hur” and “Flashpoint.”

“Her ability to navigate the North American and European markets, both creatively and commercially, combined with her long-standing relationships with producers around the globe, make her the ideal executive for the job,” said Greg Phillips, president of distribution at Kew Media.

“There’s never been more opportunity to work with both seasoned talent and new voices to bring distinct stories to the small screen,” added Stein. “With the financial backing of Kew’s recent IPO, we are poised to become one of the go-to companies for high-end, ambitious, international drama.”
