NBC is bringing aboard a former MTV programming boss to help out with development. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that David Janollari is joining NBC, less than a year after he exited as MTV’s head of programming.
Janollari has signed a three-year pact to develop scripted programming for the Peacock Network, THR reports.
“The pact reunites Janollari — the former president of the WB Network — with NBC Entertainment President Bob Greenblatt, with whom he developed ‘Six Feet Under,’ ‘Elvis’ and ‘American Family,’ among others,” the story reports.
Bela Bajaria, Universal Television executive VP, said: "Our goal is to make deals with the best creative producers in our business and David Janollari exemplifies this. Not only have I had the pleasure of working with him when he was a producer in the trenches, but he also has experience as an executive at three different networks, which gives him added insight into the complexities and ever-changing programming needs of our industry at this moment. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the Universal Television family.”
