Former AMC Networks executive Marco Frazier has been hired for the newly created position of SVP, Insight TV Studios U.S. — a broadcaster of 4K UHD content. Frazier will oversee content production and sales operations to the U.S.. He is based in the company’s New York office and reports to Natalie Boot, head of media sales, Insight TV.
Frazier will be tasked with identifying new development and co-production opportunities, including branded entertainment series and other commissions. He will also look to license programming from Insight TV’s extensive library of original content, much of which is filmed in native 4K UHD HDR and available in HD and UHD.
Frazier has more than 20 years of experience leading distribution and business development efforts on a global basis for programmers and broadcasters. He has worked extensively with SVOD services and maintains strong relationships with digital media platforms and virtual MVPDs, such as Amazon Prime Video and YouTube TV.
Before joining Insight TV, he was SVP of International Distribution for Digital and New Platforms at AMC Networks, where he held various senior-level positions over eight years. Frazier was also CEO of Screenplus, a strategic consulting business, and director of affiliate sales and distribution: EMEA for ESPN.
“Marco has been a consultant to Insight TV in the past so he is already part of the family,” Boot said in a statement. “He is very tapped in to the spirit and modality of our programming, as well as our audience.”
