CMT has just named a new senior vice president of program development. The cable channel elevated Morgan Selzer to the role, effective immediately.
The announcement was made Thursday by Keith Cox, President of Development for Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT, to whom Selzer will continue to report.
“Morgan is a seasoned and savvy development executive who crafts compelling stories across multiple formats and genres,” said Cox. “During her tenure at CMT, she’s delivered the network’s biggest hits and has a clear, creative vision to elevate the brand to new creative heights.”
Selzer, who is based in Los Angeles with frequent travel to Nashville, will lead all facets of CMT development strategy.
“Since joining CMT as Vice President of Development in 2014, she’s launched a string of hits including ‘Nashville,’ ‘Party Down South’ and ‘I Love Kellie Pickler,’ that have set new ratings benchmarks for the network,” CMT said in its announcement. “Currently, she’s overseeing production of the final season of ‘Nashville,’ as well as ‘Music City,’ from famed producer Adam DiVello, creator of ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills,’ as well as the revival of the hit series ‘Wife Swap.’”
Before joining CMT as Vice President of Development, Selzer served as Director of Development for Style Network.
