IFC has appointed Maura Madden and Jeff Meyerson as VPs of original programming, and Sachi Ezura has joined the net as director of original programming.  All three will report to Lubrano.

“Christine has been at the forefront of IFC’s evolution into a distinctive comedy destination, supervising the network’s roster of critically acclaimed hits including ‘Portlandia’ and ‘Maron,’” said Aronson.  “She has a stellar reputation in the production community as a smart, honest and effective creative partner. With her leadership, and Maura, Jeff and Sachi joining IFC, the channel is poised for continued growth and momentum.”

Lubrano has helped steer “Maron” and the returning comedy “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.” She is also executive producer of the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which has aired on IFC for over a decade.

Madden and Meyerson will be creative partners searching for fresh talent for the net, and will work with creators to develop concepts and oversee new shows.  Madden was previously senior director of comedy and animation at MTV after her previous time at IFC working on “Portlandia,” “Maron” and “Comedy Bang!

Meyerson joins IFC from Fox, where he was programming executive in charge of “Brookyn Nine-Nine” and was part of the development teams for “New Girl” and “Bob’s Burgers.”

Ezura also previously worked at MTV, where she served as a producer of “Girl Code” and was manager of original programming for MTV2.
