Fox ups programming exec Waterman

Current specialist to take on greater role

Fox has promoted Shana C. Waterman to senior veep of current programming, giving her more responsibility in overseeing production.

Waterman, who had been current programming veep, will also take on a greater role as creative advisor for new and returning Fox series, including “Glee,” “Raising Hope” and “The Mindy Project.”

“Shana is not only a trusted creative partner to our talent, but also a dynamic and inspiring leader within our company,” said Fox exec veep of current programming Marcy Ross, to whom Waterman will continue to report. “Her fresh thinking and sharp creative instincts make her a tremendous asset to our programming leadership team.”

Waterman has had a lead role in Fox’s Seizing Opportunities Forum that focused on shifting audience demographics, as well as broadcasters internal think-tank program, Fox Innovators Group.

“Shana is a top-flight programming executive and a self-starter,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said. “She executed above and beyond on every level.”

Previously a manager of development at Timberman/Beverly Prods., Waterman joined Fox as director of current programming in 2006.
