The president of television for Miramax is leaving the company and will become president of television for Spyglass Media Group. Variety reports that Lauren Whitney is making the move effective April 1.
“The news comes less than two years after Whitney first joined Miramax,” Variety reports. “There, she oversaw the studio’s television development, in addition to ‘Spy City,’ produced by Odeon and Seven Stories for ZDF, and the recent ‘Gone Baby Gone’ pilot, a co-production with 20th Century Fox Television.”
Whitney will reportedly oversee television development and production for broadcast, cable and streaming services for Spyglass. She will report to Gary Barber, chairman and CEO of Spyglass.
Barber is quoted saying: “Lauren has discerning taste, stellar industry relationships, and has overseen production on a variety of compelling series across all platforms. We are fortunate to have Lauren’s talents and creative leadership as we build on our television business.”
