Big Light Productions is adding to their executive ranks.
The independent production company set up by former The X-Files writer and executive producer Frank Spotnitz has hired European TV executive Lorraine Sullivan, TVWise has learned.
Sullivan, who will oversee projects from Big Light’s London headquarters and the newly opened Paris office, will be responsible for developing French and European television, film and documentary projects for the London based indie.
“It is a thrill to be joining the Big Light family”, Lorraine Sullivan said in a statement. “I have long admired Frank’s work and I cannot wait to work on French projects for Big Light”.
A respected international television executive, Lorraine Sullivan has previously held key roles at pay broadcasters TPS and then Canal+. Sullivan, who first met Spotnitz in 2007 after she founded the non-profit AIM, also created Totally Serialized, the first TV series festival in the UK, which successfully fostered collaboration between French and British television producers.
“Lorraine is a gifted creative executive with strong relationships throughout France and Europe. She brings tremendous global knowledge and skills to the Big Light family”, said Frank Spotnitz, founder of Big Light Productions. “There are so many compelling stories from France, and indeed the rest of Europe, that we are eager to share with the world.”
Her hire comes at a key time for Big Light, who have an ever growing slate of productions with the two most notable projects being the Amazon series The Man In The High Castle and the recently announced European drama Medici: Masters Of Florence. The company previously produced Hunted for BBC One and Cinemax, and co-produced the second season of Transporter: The Series and the third season of Crossing Lines.
