Chris Loveall, former VP of international programming for AMC Networks, is joining Disney+ in the role of VP of content for international.
Loveall will report to Matt Brodlie, senior VP of international content development, working closely with him and Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International’s regional teams on the development and production of original scripted and unscripted series, as well as acquisitions for all markets outside of the U.S.
Loveall most recently served as VP of international programming for AMC Networks, including AMC, SundanceTV and BBC America, and was responsible for the development of original international commissions and co-productions as well as select acquisitions for each network. Prior to joining the AMC Networks group, Loveall served as VP of original programming at Pivot.
“Chris has great instincts and a deep understanding of storytelling opportunities in the international marketplace,” said Brodlie. “He will be a tremendous asset as we grow a rich, diverse slate of original content that builds on the Disney+ storytelling ethos in ways that are unique to each of our international markets.”
“I’m excited to be part of the Disney+ team and look forward to working with them to identify and develop stories that resonate with fans of the service around the world,” said Loveall.
