In the wake of Bela Bajaria’s recent move to lead Netflix’s international non-English original TV series, the online streamer is shuffling its leadership team to more clearly distinguish between development of its English and non-English language content.

She will now oversee independent film, English and non-English documentary features, documentary shorts and limited documentary series such as “Wild Wild Country” and “Our Planet.”
Several comedy and documentary series that Nishimura was developing will be grandfathered into her project slate.
