Mark Burnett and Hearst Corp.'s One Three Media has tapped Terry Wood as president of unscripted and original syndication.
The veteran television and creative executive most recently had served as president of creative affairs and development at CBS Television Distribution, where she worked on such syndicated powerhouses as Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray, The Insider and The Doctors.
“I have known and admired Terry for many years,” Burnett said. “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.”
One Three Media is producing five unscripted series on the broadcast networks, including ratings powerhouses The Voice and Shark Tank. The Celebrity Apprentice, Survivor and The Job also are on Burnett's roster.
“I’ve known Mark for years and am thrilled to join his team at One Three,” Wood said. “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.”
Wood's move to One Three comes after the May hiring of HBO's Anne Thomopoulos as president of scripted.
“We now have two of the most talented and experienced executives in the industry running the creative idea origination through production for our company," Burnett said. "We are poised for enormous growth without compromising quality."
