NBC’s Renate Radford Moves to Jason Winer’s Shingle

Peacock alum to run development for helmer's 20th TV-based banner

NBC development exec Renate Radford is leaving the Peacock after more than a decade to oversee development for Jason Winer’s 20th Century Fox TV-based Small Dog Picture Co.

Winer (pictured) is among the most sought-after TV helmer-producers. Radford’s hire underscores his intent to field his own projects through his overall deal with 20th TV. Winer made his name as a helmer with the “Modern Family” pilot, which earned him an Emmy nom and Directors Guild Award win.

Winer has since directed the pilots for ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23,” NBC’s “1600 Penn” and the upcoming CBS laffer “The Crazy Ones.” He also directed the 2011 feature redo of “Arthur” starring Russell Brand.

Radford has been a comedy development exec at NBC and its studio arm since 2003. She most recently helped shepherd Peacock comedies including “Go On,” “Animal Practice” and “Best Friends Forever.”

Dana Walden, chairman of 20th TV, called Winer “the premier single-camera comedy director working in this business” and noted the studio’s focus on building “the Jason Winer brand,” now with help from Radford.

“We’ve worked with Renate for years when she was an executive at NBC and she is the perfect person to help Jason grow his company,” Walden said. “Getting her as his head of development was a coup.”
