Three Amazon Studios executives are leaving the company for jobs at Apple, including the head of children’s programming, Variety reports.
“Tara Sorensen, the head of Amazon kids programming, will take on a similar role at Apple as the company pushes more into developing original content,” Variety reports. “She will report to Apple’s chief content officers Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht, themselves former Sony TV executives.”
The report adds: “Along with Sorensen, international development executive Carina Walker and business affairs chief Tara Pietri will also depart Amazon for Apple, with Pietri leading Apple’s legal affairs division. Walker will again be an international creative executive, reporting to fellow Amazon alum Morgan Wandell.”
