Head, Worldwide Video

After over two years heading up Apple’s original video group, Van Amburg and longtime collaborator Jamie Erlicht unveiled the subscription service Apple TV Plus across 100 countries on November 1. They’ve assembled two dozen shows they greenlit from boldface names including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and J.J. Abrams. Van Amburg worked at Sony Pictures Television for 20 years, most recently serving as co-president with Erlicht, and in that time more than doubled the output of its primetime network shows, including NBC’s “The Blacklist,” ABC’s “The Goldbergs” and “Shark Tank.” He also shepherded basic and premium cable hits such as AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”
