WE tv has expanded its production team, naming CarolAnne Dolan vice president of nonfiction development and production.
Ms. Dolan will oversee creation and development of new original programming, including casting, editorial content and production staff.
WE also has promoted Theresa Patiri to vice president of production management and operations. Ms. Patiri will manage original production business affairs, such as deal negotiations, talent contracts, rights and clearances, budgets, international and domestic program sales and day-to- day production operations.
Ms. Dolan previously was an executive producer at New Zealand production company NHNZ, creating specials for Discovery, National Geographic and Animal Planet. She also worked in documentary programming at A&E for more than eight years.
Ms. Patiri has been with WE tv for more than seven years, most recently as director of production management, operations and administration. Before joining WE parent Rainbow Media, she was a television operations and production services coordinator for NBC’s News and Entertainment Operations.
“We’re confident that CarolAnne’s wealth of expertise in television production will translate seamlessly into our WE tv original programming and we’re thrilled to welcome her to the team,” Steve Cheskin, senior vice president of programming, production and packaging, said in a statement. “Theresa has a proven track record of great success at the network already and will continue to be a valuable asset moving forward. We look forward to both CarolAnne and Theresa playing an integral role in expanding the strategies for development and production for WE tv originals.”
