VP, Original Content

Her tenure as ABC Entertainment boss from 2016-2018 came with plenty of scrutiny for the former drama development exec. The spotlight grew brighter when she made the widely praised call to cancel returning “Roseanne” following a racist tweet by Barr and pick up with spinoff “The Conners” — minus its titular character. Dungey rose from ABC Studios’ VP of drama development to EVP of drama development, movies and miniseries for ABC Entertainment Group. Among her early jobs were Steamroller Productions story editor and production exec at Warner Bros., before forming Dexterity Pictures with Pamela Post in 2003. Dungey’s time at Dexterity revealed her knack for development, and her touch is visible in shows like “Scandal,” “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Black-ish.” She will join Cindy Holland as VP of Originals at Netflix in February.
