Steve Mosko Promoted to Chairman of Sony Pictures Television

Steve Mosko has been promoted to chairman of Sony Pictures Television.

The move promises stability on the TV side of the Sony Pictures lot after a major shakeup earlier this year in its film division. Mosko, who was previously president of SPT, has been with the studio since 1992 and has headed its TV operations for the past 15 years.

“Under Steve’s leadership, Sony Pictures Television has become the industry’s largest independent television studio,” said Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton. “Our media networks business has expanded to over 150 channel feeds around the world and the company is well-positioned for growth in both production and distribution. Steve is a remarkable executive and we are proud to have him at the helm of Sony Pictures Television.”

On Mosko’s watch, Sony Pictures TV rebuilt its domestic scripted operation from scratch — after the previous Sony Pictures regime shut down its money-losing primetime unit — and expanded overseas with Sony- and AXN-branded channels in more than 180 countries. Mosko also oversees Crackle, the studio’s streaming video service and the GSN cable network.

Sony TV’s content engine has been on a roll the past few years with critical and commercial hits including AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” and “Better Call Saul,” Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” Starz’s “Outlander” and NBC’s “The Blacklist.”

“I am honored to be named chairman, and grateful to Michael, my colleagues at Sony Pictures, and to the incredible team at Sony Pictures Television, whose hard work and dedication has built the successful global business we have today,” Mosko said.

Mosko rose through the ranks in syndication sales before rising to president of Sony Pictures TV in 2000.
