A veteran Starz executive is leaving the pay-cable channel after 12 years. Deadline reports that Marta Fernandez, executive vice president of Originals Programming, is exiting to pursue other opportunities.
She has reportedly been in talks with Charles D. King’s production company, Macro.
“Fernandez’s exit comes amid an executive transition at the pay cable network following the departure of CEO Chris Albrecht earlier this year as Starz and Lionsgate recently accelerated their integration with the merging of several TV operations. (Original programming was not one of them),” Deadline reports.
Fernandez was named to her most recent position in December.
