Former president of Bluegrass Television Quan Phung will join Slingshot Global Media as president of scripted TV.

The new global independent television studio was formed in February in partnership with TPG Growth with the goal of developing and producing drama and comedy television programming for the multi-platform U.S. television market.

Coming off a five-plus year tenure at Bluegrass, Phung will oversee the development of content across all genres and will work closely with talent to nurture and develop commercial returning series and limited-run event programming for traditional broadcast and cable networks, OTT content providers, and premium pay services.

Phung recently served as executive producer for NBC’s “Whitney.”

He has also served as senior vice president, creative affairs for Twentieth Century Fox Television, where he spearheaded the development and production of “How I Met Your Mother” and “My Name Is Earl.”

While at Fox, Phung served as both vice president of drama and comedy series, and helped develop “House,” “Arrested Development,” “The Bernie Mac Show” and “Grounded for Life.”

    I think you meant Phung in the last paragraph, not Chung.
