Fox Digital Exec Steven Hein Joins Legendary Digital Networks (Exclusive)

Move comes as Seth Laderman leaves Legendary to head Lionsgate's Comic-Con SVOD channel

Steven Hein, former VP of production for Fox Digital Studios, has joined Legendary Digital Networks — home of Nerdist, Felicia Day’s Geek & Sundry and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party — as senior VP of production and programming.

Hein reports to Adam Rymer, president of Legendary Digital Networks. Prior to his stint at Fox Digital, where he oversaw production of original digital projects and branded content, Hein was 20th Century Fox’s VP of digital and shortform content and before that he was an independent producer.

Hein’s move comes as Seth Laderman, former senior VP of content and operations at Legendary Digital Networks, has left the company to head up the Comic-Con International subscription video-on-demand service from Lionsgate and Comic-Con as exec VP and g.m.

Legendary in 2012 acquired Nerdist Industries, a pop-culture and geek-focused media company founded by Chris Hardwick and Peter Levin, who is now Lionsgate’s president of interactive ventures and games. Last year Legendary Entertainment bought Geek & Sundry and Poehler’s Smart Girls at the Party, an online community for women.

Meanwhile, Laderman, in association with Comic-Con International, will be responsible for programming the SVOD service, slated to launch in the first quarter of 2016.
