Keshet Studios Taps NBC Drama Alum as Head of Television


Keshet Studios has appointed Lisa Roos, former senior VP of drama development at NBC, as executive VP of television.

Roos will focus on developing original IP to bolster Keshet Studios’ slate of limited and returning series. When she was at NBC, she worked alongside the Keshet Studios team on several projects in development, as part of the studio’s ongoing production pact with Universal Television.

Prior to joining NBC, Roos spent 15 years at Warner Bros. Television, the last four of which she developed dramas, comedies, miniseries and TV movies for cable and streaming platforms at Warner Horizon.

Roos has development credits for programs such as Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Emergence, Ordinary Joe, The Vampire Diaries and You.

Peter Traugott, president of Keshet Studios, to whom Roos will report, said, “We are so excited to have Lisa join Keshet Studios. We had such a great experience with her while she was at NBC and look forward to continuing the relationship. She will be a big asset to our team.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Peter and the incredibly talented team at Keshet Studios,” added Roos. “Keshet has a history of bringing quality scripted programming to global audiences, and I’m looking forward to building on its success.”
