Scrosati

COO

Scrosati added more responsibilities to his COO brief at Fremantle in 2020, taking the reins of the super-indie’s global drama slate following the departure of Sarah Doole. The new job builds on the role he has played since he joined in 2018 — forging talent partnerships with the likes of exec producers like Richard Brown (“True Detective”) and Camila Jiménez (“El Chapo”). Buoyed by successes such as “The Salisbury Poisonings” and “My Brilliant Friend,” Fremantle drama revenue climbed 36% in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic dented its growth, but that dent is unlikely to last long as Scrosati is now overseeing 49 scripted productions back in business around the globe. He joined Fremantle from Sky Italia, where he commissioned hits including “Gomorrah” and “The Young Pope.”
