Fox current programming topper Marcy Ross has been upped to exec VP of the department.
Ross continues to oversee Fox’s slate of current scripted fare, from “24” and “House” to “Til Death” and “Prison Break.” She reports to Fox Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly, who announced the promotion on Monday.
“It’s been clear to me even in the short time I have worked with Marcy that she completely lives up to her reputation as a gifted executive with a remarkable ability to work effectively with the creative community,” Reilly said. “She’s put together a tremendous team and we’re very fortunate that she’ll continue leading our current programming efforts.”
Ross most recently served as senior VP of current programming, a position she’s held since 2002.
Prior to Fox, Ross was senior vice president of comedy at Studios USA (the shingle also known as Universal TV, and now Universal Media Studios), where she’d been since 1999. The exec’s credits also include a stint as senior VP of creative affairs at the Jim Henson Co., working on projects such as “Farscape.”
Ross was also a VP at Sandollar Television, where she helped develop “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
