Warner Bros creates new structure with creative hires

Warner Bros has made a series of senior appointments in a move the company said will prepare it for “significant changes” in the media industry.

An expanded leadership team has seen Johnny Lowry join Warner Bros International Television Production Australia from Screentime as head of original content.

He will spearhead the company’s domestic and international non-scripted streaming content strategy and oversee titles on the current production slate.

Meanwhile, Caroline Swift has been promoted to head of entertainment and will lead its non-scripted entertainment formats and franchise business across all networks and platforms.

Elsewhere, Hamish Lewis has been appointed head of scripted with responsibility for Warner Bros drama strategy. She will also drive a new slate of drama content for domestic and international streaming services and local broadcasters.

All roles will report to Michael Brooks, managing director, Warner Bros International Television Production & Warner Media International Television Distribution.

WBITV Australia managing director Michael Brooks said: “We are fortunate to have tremendous depth and breadth of talent across our organisation.

“This new structure is designed for growth, and to expand our capabilities as the media industry continues to undergo significant changes.”
