VP, Content

Before being poached by Netflix in 2018 for the newly created VP of content position, Mensah won plaudits as an astute commissioner at Sky — where she forged its drive into drama in the U.K. — and the BBC, with credits including “Britannia,” “Wallander,” “Patrick Melrose,” “Save Me” and “Chernobyl.” She now leads the streamer’s scripted-series content team focused on U.K. productions, with a goal of building on Netflix’s success with British shows such as “The Crown,” “The Stranger” and “Sex Education.” As Net­flix looks to ramp up its U.K. drama pipeline, expect to hear more about producer partnership deals such as the one Mensah signed recently with Complete Fiction. The newly formed indie — based in London and L.A. and run by “Baby Driver” producer Nira Park and director Edgar Wright — is already working with the streaming giant to develop three new series.
