Roma Roth


Reel World Management

Roma Roth is the Showrunner and Executive Producer of the CW/CTV/Fremantle Canadian series Sullivan's Crossing starring Morgan Kohan, Chad Michael Murray and Scott Patterson. Based on the Robyn Carr novel, the show became the #1 Canadian drama when it premiered, drawing higher numbers than any Canadian drama in the last three years. Following its premiere on The CW in the U.S., the show quickly became the #1 drama series on the network. 

Roth's previously executive produced the successful series Virgin River for Netflix. Also based on Carr's book of the same name, Roth was instrumental in bringing the show to life. Now heading into its sixth season, Virgin River has become a global phenomenon, and is one of only a handful of shows to spend 100 days on Netflix’s top ten list. 

In addition to being a writer and director, Roma is also President of Reel World Management (RWM), a production and distribution company that develops, finances and produces features and TV series. Roma has also written and/or produced over 70 TV movies as well as multiple episodes for Sullivan's Crossing's first season. She has been nominated for a Canadian Screen Award and is a member of the WGA, WGC, DGC, PGA, and the Television Academy.

Speaking on: Banff World Media Festival

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
