MUMBAI: Internet entertainment service Netflix has roped in Myleeta Aga as content for Australia and South East Asia.

She was responsible for all BBC Worldwide’s businesses in India including, Production, TV Sales, BBC Global News Distribution, Consumer Products, and Digital. She also oversaw content across Asia and was part of the BBC Worldwide Asia Executive Management Board.
Aga’s decision to quit BBC Studios comes at a time when the organisation has brought its Asia and Australia and New Zealand regions together to create a newly formed Asia-Pacific (APAC) regional business comprising its international sales and distribution business.
Following Aga’s departure, Jon Penn has been appointed as the Executive Vice President, APAC of BBC Studios.
