Debmar-Mercury Promotes Alexandra Jewett to EVP of Programming

Debmar-Mercury has promoted Alexandra Jewett from senior to executive vice president of programming. In partnership with Lonnie Burstein, who will remain in the role, the team will oversee all programming, development and production for the company.

Jewett joined Debmar-Mecury in September 2010 and has played a role in expanding the company’s talk and game show portfolios.  In her new role alongside Burstein, Jewett will continue to oversee “The Wendy Williams Show” (pictured), as well as the new Craig Ferguson-hosted “Celebrity Name Game,” debuting in national syndication on Sept. 22.

“Alexandra has done a remarkable job and is a major contributor to our first-run success,” said Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury. “With her strong creative instincts and production skills, keen eye for talent, profound understanding of the daytime audience and innate ability to effectively utilize social media, Alexandra has played a key role in turning ‘Wendy’ into a rare success story. Combined with the invaluable creative contributions she has made to ‘Celebrity Name Game’ and many other accomplishments, Alexandra is very deserving of this promotion and we are thrilled to have her and Lonnie lead all of our programming efforts.”

Jewett began her TV career as a producer for “The Phil Donahue Show” in 1989, and went on to launch an executive produce “The John Walsh Show,” as well as develop and adapt numerous U.S. program formats for the international market.
