Walter Iuzzolino is a former commissioner and TV Executive responsible for generating a wide range of primetime factual entertainment hit series. As a Commissioning Editor for Features at Channel 4, Walter developed a string of factual hit formats before leaving to become Creative Director at Betty, where he spearheaded a quick growth trajectory of turnover and output which led to the company sale to Discovery Networks International in 2011. In 2014 Walter left Betty to pursue his dream of launching a foreign language drama channel. Walter Presents launched January 2016 in the UK as a FREE video-on-demand service and is a joint venture between Channel 4 and Global Series Network, co-founded by Jo McGrath and Jason Thorp. In March 2017 Walter Presents launched as an SVOD platform in the US with the New York Times hailing it as a ‘chic TV boutique with a foreign accent.’ In November 2017 Walter Presents launched in Australia on Foxtel, the second stage of a planned global rollout.
