Key MTV Executive Departs the Network Deadline
A top programming executive at MTV has parted ways with the cable network. Deadline.com reports that Senior Vice President of Scripted Programming Justin Levy is headed out.
The decision was mutual, the story says.
Levy, who joined MTV in 2008, was involved with some of the network’s most popular scripted shows, including “Teen Wolf” and “Awkward.”
The Deadline report notes that two years after Levy joined MTV, "David Janollari came over as head of scripted. When Janollari was elevated two years later, Levy and Clay Spencer, who had been brought in by Janollari, were made co-heads of scripted and upped to SVP in August 2012. Three months later, Susanne Daniels replaced Janollari and Spencer exited. Levy flew solo on the scripted side for a couple of months until Daniels brought in Mina Lefevre as SVP and head of scripted programming."
