Zack Van Amburg
United States



Head, Worldwide Video

Van Amburg has helped bring the best of television to fruition. That’s surely what prompted Apple to grab him last year with longtime collaborator Jamie Erlicht as it entered the original programming space. On the still-under-wraps Apple service’s slate is a remake of Steven Spielberg’s anthology “Amaz-ing Stories,” an Octavia Spencer drama about America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts, and a comedy starring Hailee Steinfeld as Emily Dickinson. He worked at Sony Pictures Television for 20 years, serving as co-president with Erlicht and more than doubling the output of network primetimers, including NBC’s “The Blacklist” and ABC’s “The Goldbergs” and “Shark Tank.” He made waves in basic and premium cable, too, with AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”
