AMC Networks continues to integrate the AMC and SundanceTV leadership under AMC and Sundance President & General Manager Charlie Collier and the two networks’ president of original programming and development Joel Stillerman. Both came out of AMC, adding Sundance to their oversight.
Now the same is being done with another senior member of the AMC programming team, Susie Fitzgerald, most recently SVP of scripted development and current programming for AMC. She is being elevated to EVP of scripted programming for both AMC and SundanceTV. She remains based in Los Angeles.
Christian Vesper, who had overseen Sundance’s scripted operations as SVP of scripted development and current programming, will move to a new area. He has been named SVP of international programming, development, acquisitions and co-productions for the network and remains based in New York.
Kristin Jones, who was brought on in 2014 by AMC as a consultant focused on international scripted projects, has officially joined the network as SVP of international programming, development, acquisitions and co-productions. She is now based at AMC’s New York offices. In addition, Kristi Felton has joined AMC as VP of scripted programming and is based in Los Angeles.
Fitzgerald, Vesper and Jones all report into Joel Stillerman, while Felton reports into Fitzgerald.
“Susie has helped lead AMC to record-breaking heights with shows like The Walking Dead and Better Call Saul,” said Stillerman. “We’re excited to have her extend that expertise to the work being done at SundanceTV, which Christian has played a significant role in shaping for over a dozen years. With Christian overseeing all international projects for SundanceTV, we’ll continue our strong momentum in bringing the best of the world’s dramas to the U.S. and attracting premier partnerships as we’ve done with The Honorable Woman and Top Of The Lake, among many others. At AMC, Kristin has already made a significant impact on our programming line-up, from the successful launch and renewal of ‘Humans’ to next year’s highly anticipated mini-series The Night Manager.”
