BBC Studios Ups Eve Frederick at L.A. Production Arm


BBC Studios has promoted Eve Frederick from VP to senior VP of production for its Los Angeles production arm.

In 2021, Frederick helped launch an array of Los Angeles productions, spanning from originals to U.S. adaptations of global formats. She works to ensure the safety of cast and crew across varied locations, in addition to acting as a point person for sustainability initiatives for BBC Studios’ Los Angeles office.

Frederick oversees production teams for a variety of series, including Life Below Zero on National Geographic, Murder Among the Mormons on Netflix, Ex-Rated on Peacock and Top Gear America on MotorTrend. She has additional credits for Port Protection and Breaking Bobby Bones for National Geographic and Texicanas for Bravo.

Prior to joining BBC Studios in 2018, Frederick helped build the Los Angeles arm of Matador Content, where she oversaw development and series projects with Viacom, HBO, ABC, Facebook, National Geographic, SYFY, AMC, GSN, A&E and Oxygen.

“Eve has proven to be a decisive and solution-oriented leader as she navigates the daily challenges that arise in unscripted production,” said Valerie Bruce, general manager of BBC Studios’ Los Angeles productions. “Over the past two years throughout the pandemic, she has skillfully managed a multitude of rapidly shifting circumstances. Eve’s production expertise, her commitment to our crews as well as to the creative vision for our series and her focus on advancing sustainability are vital to our Los Angeles production business.”

Frederick added, “Bringing our projects to life is incredibly rewarding, especially because it’s a collective and inclusive effort spanning some of the most dynamic teams, incredible talent and challenging production locations in the nation. The scope of what we’re producing together never ceases to amaze and humble me. It’s an honor to support our tireless crews who expertly capture the stunning visuals our programming is known for and who are dedicated to the BBC’s long-standing tradition of collaborative, compelling and insightful storytelling.”
