Verve has hired TV executive Melissa Darman.
In her most recent position as manager of TV at Lionsgate, Darman focused on comedy (“Anger Management,” “St. George,” “Partners”) in both the development and production stages. Prior to that, she was the coordinator at ABC Network in comedy development and had a hand developing more than 25 comedy pilots during the 2011-2013 seasons.
“We are excited to have someone with Melissa’s experience at both a television network and studio bring her talents and perspective to our business,” said the Verve partners in a joint statement.
Darman started her career in the ICM mailroom where she went on to become an assistant and then coordinator in the TV lit department.
