Jun 15, 2018  •  Post A Comment

The director of original programming for Netflix has exited the company after four years, according to a report on Deadline. The company confirmed the departure of Tara Duncan, who joined the streaming service after working at AMC, HBO and BET.

“At the time, she was one of only handful of development executives at the streaming service, which was in the early stages of its massive expansion into original programming,” Deadline notes. Duncan oversaw series including “Orange Is the New Black,” “Narcos,” “Longmire: and “Sense8.”

Her immediate plans are unknown.

“Duncan’s departure comes within days of the exit of fellow Netflix TV development executive Layne Eskridge, who went to Apple, a move that had been in the works for months,” Deadline notes. “That leaves a hole in Netflix’s development ranks as Duncan and Eskridge were the only African American TV executives on the team.”
