Sky Italia Appoints Nicola Maccanico as Content Chief

Prominent Italian exec Nicola Maccanico, who is a former managing director of Warner Bros. in Italy, has been appointed chief of programming at Sky Italia.

The appointment of Maccanico follows the recent exit of Andrea Scrosati who held that position at the Italian unit of pan-European pay TV giant Sky and starting in November will become COO of Fremantle Media in London.

Maccanico early in his career joined Sky Italia as its European affairs manager, then went to Warner Bros. which he left in 2016 to head the innovative Sky Italia-led Vision Distribution theatrical distribution unit, a brainchild of Scrosati, which has become the country’s second-largest local theatrical distributor in less than two years.

Maccanico will take on the new role of Sky Italia Executive VP Programming, becoming the top content executive in Italy for Sky, which is now controlled by U.S. cable giant Comcast.
