In his new newly appointed role, Maigret will report to Endemol North America chairman David Goldberg while continuing to oversee North America rights acquisitions for the group.
Endemol Studios will focus on primetime U.S. cable drama productions based on original projects developed internally, as well as scripted formats adapted from Endemol’s international portfolio.
Jeremy Gold will serve as head of creative affairs at Endemol Studios. Previously, Gold was senior vice president, scripted programming, and launched Endemol U.S.'s scripted TV development division.
"Endemol Studios represents a significant step in our ongoing strategy to expand and diversify our activities in North America at the same time helping fuel our global growth," says Goldberg. "Maigret and Gold bring together a powerful blend of experience and a track record of delivering projects with global potential."
"It is something of a wish fulfillment to build a new generation TV studio business," says Maigret. "Endemol Studios will draw on Endemol’s world leading creative resources in the U.S. and around the world, as well as leveraging the Group’s global distribution platforms.”
