Dante Di Loreto, exec producer of “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and “Scream Queens,” has been named president of television at Chernin Entertainment.

Di Loreto will oversee the day-to-day TV development and production for Peter Chernin’s company.

“Dante has consistently delivered inspired television series that capture unique characters and stories,” said Chernin’s head of film and television, Jenno Topping, to whom Di Loreto will report. “He’s a champion of courageous writers and vision. We look forward to getting started with him.”

Di Loreto commented: “Peter and Jenno are two of the most successful and highly regarded producers working today. Their clear vision and unique strategy make Chernin Entertainment the ideal destination for top-tier talent and material in this rapidly evolving industry. I am honored to join their team and look forward to nurturing inventive first-rate programming.”
