Garvie has been overseeing SPT’s international productions on an interim basis for several months, following the departure of Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, who joined Apple.

Garvie moved to SPT in 2012 from All3Media, where he was MD of international production with responsibility for the company’s growth in the US.

His new role at SPT will see him lead the studio’s international television production business, overseeing the creative teams outside the US as well as SPT’s 20 owned and joint-venture international production companies around the world.

Garvie, who is based in London, will continue to report to SPE chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra, who rejigged the TV department after the exit of Van Amburg and Erlicht. The duo had taken on international production following the exit of Steve Mosko.

Vinciquerra said Garvie “has been a strong leader, galvanising our international production team with his energy, enthusiasm and creativity without missing a beat.”

Garvie was previously chief creative officer for international production at SPT, working on shows including The Crown for Netflix and the forthcoming BBC/Amazon project A Very English Scandal.

Prior to All3, Garvie was MD for content and production at BBC Worldwide, responsible for establishing the corporation’s global network of production companies and overseeing its international formats business, including Dancing With the Stars and Top Gear.

Prior to that he was head of entertainment at the BBC and director of broadcasting for Granada.
