Fox is making more exec shuffles in its development ranks, naming Lindsay Sloane as the net’s co-head of drama programming.
Sloane will run the department with Terence Carter, who joined Fox earlier this year from NBC. She replaces Rachel Bendavid, who is exiting the network.
The drama switch reps the second major change in recent weeks at the net. Comedy topper Susan Levison departed this month.
Sloane’s hire means Fox will continue to employ a co-head structure for its development teams (Suzanna Makkos and Marcus Wiley now lead the comedy side, just as Carter and Sloane handle drama).
Sloane will report to Fox Entertainment exec VP Matt Cherniss, who announced the hire Monday. Cherniss called Sloane a “gifted scripted series development executive.”
“We’ve established the ideal team to lead the next generation of drama development at Fox,” he said.
Like Carter, Sloane hails from the Peacock conglom. Previously she was VP of original scripted series at USA Network.
