RDF USA restructures LA office

The US arm of UK indie producer and distributor RDF has restructured its Los Angeles office after the arrival of former ITV exec Natalka Znak as chief creative officer.

Znak, who was responsible for Hell’s Kitchen and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, joined RDF USA earlier this month. She will be in charge of managing the development and current departments.

Subsequently, Claire O’Donohue will become executive VP, current, and Mike Duffy will be executive VP, development. O’Donohue currently oversees shows including Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty, which airs on VH1, and ABC’s Secret Millionaire, while Duffy, who previously exec produced TLC’s One Big Happy Family, is in charge of developing original unscripted series and reversioning international formats.

“This new structure is evidence of a renewed focus and increased investment in the creative side of our production business,” says RDF USA CEO Grant Mansfield.
