Syfy has landed a leading development executive from USA Network. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Syfy hired USA Network’s senior vice president of alternative development and production, Heather Olander.
Olander will replace reality chief Tim Krubsack, who left the network six months ago, and will start immediately, while also remaining with USA until early next year, the story notes. At USA, she’s overseeing the reality docuseries “Chrisley Knows Best.”
“Heather’s impressive pedigree and track record makes her the perfect choice to take over the reins of Syfy’s growing slate of high-quality unscripted programming,” Syfy President Dave Howe said.
