Studer will oversee content strategy, development and production and build a slate of local-language and micro-budget films out of North America and international markets.

The move comes as Paramount Global seeks to draw subscribers to its streaming service Paramount+ and its other direct-to-consumer offerings.

Previously, Studer was an exec VP at Paramount-owned brands Nickelodeon and Awesomeness’s kids and family studio, where she oversaw all live-action feature-length content.

Prior to moving to Nickelodeon, Studer served as exec VP, worldwide acquisitions at Paramount Pictures, where she oversaw the global content acquisitions business.

Studer will be based in LA and manage a team of creative executives around the world, reporting to Dan Cohen, chief content licensing officer for Paramount Global.

“Great stories know no boundaries. I’m excited to join Dan’s team to launch this business and look forward to working with filmmakers around the world to help bring local-language, culturally rich films to a global audience,” said Studer.
