Call Me Fitz co-producer Amaze Film + Television has hired Victoria Hirst as executive in charge of production.

The indie also tapped Tara Woodbury as its director of development.

Hirst, who will oversee production at Amaze Film, has film credits that include Century Hotel, American Psycho, Owning Mahowny and Away From Her, and TV credits like Mr. Young for YTV and Thunderbird Films.

She will get to work on an un-named TV series that starts shooting in late March.

“Victoria is an accomplished producer with great instincts and a strong professional ethic”, said Teza Lawrence, co-president of Amaze Film in a statement Monday.

Tara Woodbury is also on board to oversee the indie producer’s development slate.

Michael Souther and Lawrence launched Amaze Film in 2000, and had earlier film projects like Saint Ralph and Finn on the Fly before producing Call Me Fitz from creator Sheri Elwood with Big Motion Pictures and Entertainment One.
