October 18th, 2018 – New Metric Media is continuing to expand its development focus with the hire of Beth Iley as director of development.
In the newly created post, Iley will source and develop dramatic TV projects alongside the company’s VP of development Caroline Habib. She’ll report to company president Mark Montefiore.
Iley has spent the past three years working as a producer on Killjoys (produced by Temple Street for Space and Syfy), which she also helped develop. Prior to that she worked at Temple Street as a manager of scripted programming. Iley’s development, pre-production and post-production credits include The Next Step, Orphan Black, Lost & Found Music Studios and X Company.
Iley’s hire comes 10 months after New Metric hired Habib, who previously served director of Mongrel International, to head up its development team. In June, New Metric expanded its ranks again with the appointment of Alex Lalonde as VP of business affairs and operations.
Season two of mob drama Bad Blood, produced by New Metric and Sphere Media Plus, premiered on Rogers’ Citytv on Oct. 11.
