Entertainment One (eOne) has hired Christopher Kennedy as development executive for U.K. television, joining from Universal International Studios.

In his new role, Kennedy will oversee development for the studio’s growing original scripted drama slate, with a focus on nurturing strong relationships with top-tier U.K. talent to bring fresh, compelling stories to buyers in Europe and worldwide.
