USA’s Sloane Takes Drama Reins at Fox
USA Network development executive Lindsay Sloane is joining Fox Broadcasting, signing on to run drama development with Terence Carter.
Ms. Sloane and Mr. Carter have been named co-heads of drama and will be charged with finding new one-hour projects for the network. With the title of vice president, both will report to Fox Executive VP for Programming Matt Cherniss.
“Lindsay is a gifted scripted series development executive with good taste and an impressive track record,” Mr. Cherniss said. “Combined with Terence’s great relationships and strong creative instincts, we’ve established the ideal team to lead the next generation of drama development at Fox.”
Mr. Carter, who recently joined Fox from NBC, had been running drama at the network with Rachel Bendavid, who has left the network. The team of Mr. Carter and Ms. Bendavid was put in place after Laura Lancaster left Fox earlier this year to go to NBC.
According to a recent report in Variety, Fox is also shaking up its comedy development team. The network plans to replace current comedy chief Susan Levinson with her deputies, Suzanna Makkos and Marcus Wiley.
Ms. Sloane had been VP of original scripted series programming at USA Network, where she helped develop shows such as “Psych” and oversaw production on “The Dead Zone” and “The 4400.” Ms. Sloane previously worked for producer Mark Johnson’s Gran Via Productions.
