Goyette-Burke, who oversees the casting department on Argonon-owned Leopard Films USA’s House Hunters International for HGTV, will report into Argonon USA CEO Joe Weinstock.

The exec’s remit will span Argonon labels Rose Rock Entertainment and Leopard USA, supporting the expansion of both companies’ pipeline of commissioned series and funded developments.

Her previous roles included director of casting and talent for ITV, where she oversaw casting for History Channel hits including Forged in Fire and American Restoration, as well as contributing to the casting for Netflix’s Queer Eye.

Goyette-Burke’s promotion follows a series of recent senior appointments across Argonon USA, with the appointment of Weinstock as CEO, the hire of Darryl Cordova as senior director of development at Rose Rock and the promotion of Travis Schoen to VP, production and Development, Rose Rock.

Since launching in 2022, Rose Rock has created and developed a slate of original programming including Last Chance Garage for Motor Trend, with further unannounced series, one-off specials and funded developments for US networks.

Leopard USA, meanwhile, has further unscripted shows in funded development and recently secured a renewed order for House Hunters International, on which Goyette-Burke will continue to oversee the casting department.

In a joint statement, Weinstock and chief operating officer Steven McGovern said: “With multiple new projects at the development and commissioning stage and the creative sector now back on an upwards trajectory, the timely appointment of Lindsay Goyette-Burke in this new role further expands our US senior team, supporting our plans for rapid growth. Lindsay is a stellar casting director whose track record in managing global talent and identifying unique characters across America aligns with our creative programming ambitions.”

James Burstall, Argonon’s global CEO and executive chair at Argonon USA, added: “We’re encouraged by recent meetings with networks and streamers who are actively seeking new content for 2024 and beyond as the US creative economy begins to turn.

“With a hyper-focus on US growth through our West Coast hub and with significant investment in a world class US senior team, Lindsay will enhance our creative output across our expanding range of US commissions and funded developments.”
