UK and US-based production and financing company Arrested Industries has appointed Judy Levenson as SVP of sales and Mette Kanne-Behrendsen as SVP of acquisitions.

The appointments come following the Anthony Kimble and Merrily Ross-led company rebranding from its former name of Fugitive in April ahead of the launch of its US scripted arm.

Based in the US, Levenson will oversee unscripted and scripted content sales in North America. She joins Arrested from Leverage Media, a consulting firm where she served as principal. She has also held content and sales roles at Litton Entertainment, Scott Brothers Entertainment, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Networks, and Showtime Networks.

UK-based Kanne-Behrendsen, meanwhile, will focus on unscripted content acquisitions and arrives from NENT Studios UK, where she was SVP of acquisitions until it was acquired by All3Media in June. Prior to her nearly five years with NENT, she worked at Off The Fence and before that spent more than a decade at Modern Times Group, latterly as director pay TV channels, where she was responsible for a large portfolio that included the Viasat History, Crime and Nature channel brands.
