Carey named Sony TV VP

Executive to lead content haul

Sony is promoting digital sales chief Sean Carey and, perhaps most notably, giving him a new boss: Steve Mosko.

Carey has been upped to senior executive vice president for Sony Pictures Television and will head up the studio’s domestic digital entertainment sales group. He’ll lead Sony’s day-to-day efforts to make its film and TV content available for purchase on a wide variety of new media platforms, reporting directly to SPT prexy Mosko.

Until recently, Carey and his unit had operated as an independent unit within Sony. Shift to SPT means that Mosko now handle all domestic post-theatrical and broadcast distribution windows for Sony content, save for homevideo.

Mosko said moving Carey and his team to SPT will allow the digital group to wring more coin out of Sony programming.

“Now that they’re plugged into the TV group, they’ll have all these resources they didn’t have in the past,” he said. “It allows us to maximize our windows and our revenue. We’ll be able to be more strategic about how we sell all of our content.”

Until recently, Carey had been EVP of digital distribution and product acquisition for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

He’s been at the studio for 14 years, much of it in corporate development. In that capacity, Carey helped secure more than $1 billion in production financing and lead Sony’s acquisition of Groper Networks.

“Because of his years in corporate development, he’s already got great relationships with everyone in the company,” Mosko said of Carey.

Amy Carney, who runs domestic digital ad sales for Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony BMG, also reports to Mosko.
