One Three Media has announced the hiring of veteran TV and creative executive Terry Wood, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Mark Burnett and Hearst-owned company named Wood president of unscripted and original syndication.
Wood was most recently president of creative affairs and development at CBS Television Distribution, where she was behind top shows including “Dr. Phil,” “Rachael Ray,” “The Insider” and “The Doctors.”
Said Burnett: “I have known and admired Terry for many years. She is a personal friend and a top-level producer with an unparalleled track record of success with quality programming — which is very important in differentiating television storytelling today. She is a perfect fit for One Three as we expand our business into 2013.”
The report notes: “One Three Media is producing five unscripted series on the broadcast networks, including ratings powerhouses ‘The Voice’ and ‘Shark Tank.’ ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ ‘Survivor’ and ‘The Job’ also are on Burnett’s roster.”
Wood commented: “I’ve known Mark for years and am thrilled to join his team at One Three. He has more hits on television than anyone. I’ve been looking for the perfect place to start the next chapter of my career, and this is absolutely the right fit because I care about producing quality shows.”
The piece adds: “Wood’s move to One Three comes after the May hiring of HBO’s Anne Thomopoulos as president of scripted.”
