Noel Hedges

EVP, Acquisitions


As EVP, Acquisitions and Coproductions, Noel works closely with third party independent producers around the world, to acquire television product for distribution to all media outlets across scripted and non-scripted. Based in London, he sources and secures premium scripted and non-scripted programming at the earliest stages to complement the studio’s portfolio of world-class content.

Before joining Lionsgate, Hedges served as EVP, Content at DRG, where he developed and oversaw the company’s content strategy, bolstering their scripted catalogue and finding new opportunities to grow the business in a highly competitive market. Prior to that, he held key senior roles at Shine International and ITV Studios.  

Speaking on: Meet a Distributor; Meet a Distributor

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.
