Reporting to Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch, Kalle oversees the international growth of StarzPlay – including all aspects of programming and production for international original series, plus distribution, marketing and publicity – along with fellow streamer Lionsgate Play.

Prior to joining Starz, Kalle was a senior advisor to several media companies, guiding them on international SVoD strategy, digital operations, restructuring and global business development. Her clients included Starz, Lionsgate and CBS/Showtime.

She also spent 16 years at Sony Pictures Television, latterly as senior VP and general manager of networks.

Hirsch said: “Superna is an incredibly talented and strategic executive who has demonstrated her acute business expertise to help expand Starz into the global premium SVoD service it is today.

“She has done a superb job of building a successful international division from the ground up that has formed strategic distribution partnerships and international original productions that contribute to our company’s innovation and distinction. I look forward to even greater global growth under her continued leadership.”
