Lifetime Entertainment Services has named former WB Network executive Susanne Daniels as president of entertainment for Lifetime, effective Sept. 12, the network announced Thursday.

Ms. Daniels will be based in Los Angeles and will be responsible for all programming on Lifetime Television, Lifetime Movie Network and Lifetime Real Women.

“Her remarkable success at The WB, where she was the driving vision behind shows that have become pillars of the industry, demonstrates the insight, industry relationships and hit-driven track record that we’ve been looking for in our new head of programming,” said Betty Cohen, CEO of Lifetime Entertainment Services.

The post has been vacant since May 2004. General manager Rick Haskins handled programming duties on an interim basis, but he was unable to come to terms with Ms. Cohen and left in June.
