Wayne Garvie To Take Over Sony Pictures Television

Wayne Garvie, the head of international production at All3Media – the super indie behind shows including Shameless, Skins and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares – is leaving after less than two years to join Sony Pictures Television.
Garvie, who worked at BBC Worldwide's international production business, joined All3Media in September 2010 to exploit its stable of shows including Skins, Hollyoaks, Midsomer Murders and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares internationally.
He joins Sony Pictures Television in the role of chief creative officer for international production, responsible for the company's network of joint ventures and studios outside of Los Angeles.
SPT has majority stakes in UK independent producers including Silver River, Gogglebox Entertainment and Victory Television and makes shows including Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the Beyoncé and Will Young specials for ITV and Breakaway for BBC2.
The company recently announced it is to produce a version of The Voice for Middle Eastern broadcaster MBC and 60 further episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond for the Russian market.
"Wayne's creative leadership across international businesses and his pedigree in entertainment production need little introduction," said Andrea Wong, president of international production at SPT.
Garvie, who will take up his new role in June, first met Wong when he worked at BBC Worldwide and was pitching Strictly Come Dancing in the US. Wong was working at ABC and picked up the idea, turning it into Dancing with the Stars for the US market.
"Working with Andrea, the great individuals and companies within the group and the ambition and size of Sony, all combine to offer a unique opportunity to create new global brands that entertain and inspire the world," he said.
