She spearheaded the development of Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” ABC’s “Nashville” and NBC miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby,” among other projects. Upcoming projects include ABC Family series “Chasing Life,” a co-production with Televisa, and E!’s first scripted series, “The Royals” starring Elizabeth Hurley.
