AMC Elevates Ben Davis to Senior VP of Scripted Programming

AMC has promoted Ben Davis to senior VP of scripted programming.

He will now be responsible for helping to manage existing prods and the network’s scripted programming development slate and will continue to report to Susie Fitzgerald, AMC’s senior VP of scripted development and current programming.

“Ben is a talented executive who joined AMC just as the network was beginning its original programming transformation, and he has played a significant role in our success,” Fitzgerald said. “We are pleased to recognize the contributions he has made across many iconic AMC series, and his continuing work in helping to develop the next generation of AMC programming, with this well-deserved promotion.”

Since joining AMC in 2005, Davis has been part of the team behind the  Emmy Award-winning mini-series “Broken Trail,” as well as the pilots for “Breaking Bad,” “Mad Men” and “Rubicon.” He has also served as the day-to-day creative exec in charge of “Breaking Bad,” “The Killing” and the first three seasons of “Mad Men.”

Davis was instrumental in the development of “The Walking Dead” and acted as both the network and studio exec of the series on its way to becoming the No. 1 show among adults 18-49. He has overseen current programming for all seasons of the popular comic book adaptation.

He most recently developed the pilots “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Turn” and now supervises creative development for the “Breaking Bad” spinoff, “Better Call Saul,” set to premiere in Nov.
