Jamie Erlicht
United States



Head, Worldwide Video

Together with Zack Van Amburg, Erlicht served Sony Pictures Television with enough distinction to have earned them the shared position of original-content chief at Apple, where they are building a slate that runs the gamut from children’s programming (through a deal with Sesame Workshop) to a multi-year partnership with Oprah Winfrey to Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon’s scripted drama about morning TV to an untitled space-race series from Ron Moore (“Battlestar Galactica”). In his multiple capacities at Sony and, before that, Artists Television Group and Columbia TriStar Television, Erlicht proved his instinct for developing quality shows. He more than doubled SPT’s output, including “Shark Tank,” “The Blacklist,” “Better Call Saul” and “Outlander.”
