Andrea
Scrosati

COO

At Fremantle, where he started in late 2018, Scrosati is helping to grow Fremantle’s high-end dramas by forging partnerships like the multi-year one inked in June with “Catch 22″ and “True Detective” producer Richard Brown. His hands-on role in the execution of Fremantle’s worldwide scripted plan involves optimizing synergies between its operations across southern Europe (Italy, Spain, France, Portugal), Brazil, Mexico, Israel and Fremantle’s U.K. scripted label Euston Films. At Sky Italia, Scrosati commissioned some of Europe’s hottest TV series, such as “Gomorrah” and “The Young Pope.” Starting there in 2007 as VP of corporate and market communications, he became head of scripted content at the company’s flagship SkyUno channel three years later, shaking up Italy’s TV landscape with a slate of uniquely enticing shows.
