Head, Worldwide Video

Together with Zack Van Amburg, Erlicht served Sony Pictures Television with enough distinction to have earned them both the shared position of Apple’s original-content chief in 2017, where they are building a star-studded 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 has proven his instinct for developing and producing quality shows. He more than doubled SPT’s output of original series, including “Shark Tank,” “The Blacklist,” “Better Call Saul” and “Outlander.”
