A&E Network has promoted Gabriel Marano to SVP of scripted programming, a newly created post at the cabler.

Marano, who is based on the West Coast, will oversee the net’s scripted programming team and the development of all original scripted content.

“Gabe is a dynamic executive with a strong creative vision and an unparalleled passion for television,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, exec VP and head of programming. “With his instincts for innovative programming, I’m certain our expanding scripted slate will continue to flourish under Gabe’s direction.”

Since joining A&E in February 2013 as VP of drama, Marano has overseen numerous projects including “Bates Motel” and the upcoming series “Damien,” set to premiere in 2016.
