The new company will see her operate as a media consultant to the TV industry, offering a mix of management consultancy and strategic troubleshooting with a strong emphasis on unscripted content.

For more than 17 years, Kozak was senior VP and head of production at Warner Bros Discovery where she led nonfiction content for Investigation Discovery (ID) and the streaming platform MAX.

Kozak and her team helmed series including Evil Lives Here, House of Hammer, The Curious Case of Natalia Grace, and Jared From Subway: Catching A Monster.

Before joining the ID team, Kozak was VP of production for Discovery’s Emerging Networks, where she executive produced several series, including the Science Channel’s  Emmy-nominated Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.

Prior to this, Kozak was senior executive producer for Discovery Channel, where she steered a range of series and specials including Two Weeks In Hell, Destroyed In Seconds and UFOs Over Earth. She was also senior executive producer for TLC, launching Say Yes To The Dress in 2007.

Kozak said: “Fifteen years with ID, the world’s most successful true crime network, has been invaluable experience, but I’ve also helmed historical and military docs, and spent years as an exec on successful formats for Discovery Channel and TLC; not to mention several years producing highly successful food programmes at the BBC.

“I want to put this abundance of experience, team building and management to good use in the future, whether it’s helping UK production companies expand into the US market, or simply trouble shooting a series or feature doc.”

Prior to joining Discovery Communications, Kozak served as series producer for BBC Productions USA, launching TLC’s hit series What Not To Wear and three seasons of While You Were Out.

During the early part of her career, Kozak was a producer, director, event producer and sports journalist, appearing with David Frost and Michael Parkinson live on TVAM. In the late 1980s, she specialised in military documentaries, developing and directing the prime time hit Bomb Disposal Man, for BBC1.
