Amy Introcaso-Davis, who spearheaded programming efforts in previous stints at Lifetime, Bravo and most recently Oxygen, has been tapped as EVP Programming at Game Show Network. She will be charged with developing and acquiring programming designed to boost the network’s core adult female demographic — something right up her ally based on her previous work at female-skewing networks. “Amy has an impressive track record of creating phenomenally successful and culturally relevant content,” said GSN president and CEO David Goldhill, to whom she will report. “We’re particularly pleased to have her join GSN in a year when we’ve substantially increased our original programming and acquired some exciting series to engage our audience.” Most recently, Introcaso-Davis was SVP Original Programming and Development at Oxygen Media, where she oversaw among other shows its summer series The Glee Project. Before that she was at Bravo, where she developed and executive produced Queer Eye For The Straight Guy, Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List and oversaw development of the Real Housewives franchise.
GSN recently hired former E! and Cartoon Network marketing boss Stephen Croncota as EVP and Chief Marketing Officer, and now with Introcaso-Davis it is taking another step in a new commitment to programming and branding. “I am energized by the network’s commitment to increasing original production and am excited by the prospect of leading the charge to redefine the game show for this multi-platform world,” Introcaso-Davis said in the release announcing her new gig, which begins November 1.
