Fremantle Hires for Global Drama Team


Fremantle has added two new hires to its global drama division, including Olivia Sleiter as head of production.

In her new role, Sleiter will have a view across Fremantle productions globally. She will work closely on all forthcoming co-productions with significant investment from Fremantle International.

Previously, Sleiter executive produced for a number of production companies before joining the Fremantle label Wildside. There, she contributed to building the company alongside executive producing such shows as Anna and In Treatment.

Robert Delamere is joining Fremantle’s global drama division as creative producer. He will work on the development and production of scripted projects for Fremantle, bringing in IP and building a strong roster of creative talent.

Delamere founded Digital Theatre and Digital Theatre Plus and remains a producer and consultant for the podcasting company Storyglass.

Christian Vesper, president of Fremantle’s global drama division, said: “With her exceptional production experience, Olivia is best placed to take on the head of production role. From nurturing our production talent and ensuring best practice across the business, her global view will elevate our production ambitions, ensuring we continue to deliver outstanding dramas and films for years to come.

“And with his exceptional creative vision and connections across the industry, Robert is perfectly positioned to source the kind of original projects that are the lifeblood of what we produce here at Fremantle. Building the team with this caliber of industry expertise will enable us to increase our delivery of high-quality dramas as we continue to serve the global audience.”
