The announcement comes following news of ITV Studios America producing FRANKLIN, starring Michael Douglas for Apple TV+ and continued success for other ITV Studios’ U.S. scripted business with Tomorrow Studios, Work Friends, Bedrock Entertainment and Circle of Confusion Television Studio.

"As our scripted business continues to expand, we are grateful to Anuj and Neil for their stellar work, and to Robert for coming on board and bringing his proven track record and wealth of knowledge to the ITV Studios America team and our label partners.

Goyal, who has worked with ITV since 2014, transitions to the ITV Studios America team after previous roles with ITV as Business Affairs Executive in the U.K. and most recently as VP, Business and Legal Affairs for ITV Global Entertainment Americas in Los Angeles, CA.
