Louise Fox, producer and showrunner of the Australian paranormal series Glitch, has joined the Matchbox Pictures and NBCUniversal team in a role that will see her working exclusively for both outfits across a range of scripted projects.
Fox served as writer on The Kettering Incident, adapted the novel Dead Europe by Christos Tsiolkas, and co-created, wrote and was showrunner/producer on seasons one and two of Glitch for ABC TV and Netflix. She is already in development on season three of Glitch and is working with NBCU on developing a pilot for Hulu in the U.S.
Matt Vitins, acting managing director for Matchbox, said: “Louise has been a close friend and collaborator with the company over a number of years, especially on Glitch, and we are thrilled to have her even closer on our projects. She will be an incredible asset to our scripted team.”
Debbie Lee, director of scripted at Matchbox, said: “Louise is an incredible creative talent and we are really excited to have her work across our development slate and productions.”
Fox added: “Both Matchbox and NBCU are companies that have championed me and supported a range of fabulous and diverse practitioners for a long time. The quality of their work and their working relationships is a testament to that and I’m so thrilled I get to keep working with them more closely as we build on that.”
