Showtime’s Levine inks three-year deal

Exec VP of original programming reups at cabler

Gary Levine, Showtime’s exec VP of original programming, has been given a three-year deal by the pay cabler.

Levine, who just reached his 10-year anni at the net, has worked under three Showtime toppers: Jerry Offsay, Robert Greenblatt and David Nevins, who became prexy last year.

“Gary and I have known each other as friends and colleagues for many years and my first priority in coming into the new job was making sure that he would stay with us for years to come,” Nevins said. “His creative leadership has been an absolutely integral part of making the Showtime brand what it is today.”

Among the shows that Levine has been instrumental in developing are “Dexter,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Weeds” and rookie drama “Shameless.”

“I feel like I’m enjoying this incredible ride as co-pilot on a three-stage rocket, creatively exploring the unknown,” Levine said. “With David, we are already soaring to new heights as we continue this remarkable creative adventure.”
