TanNa Young, a longtime TV producer and production executive, died March 17 in Williamsburg, VA of cancer with complications from Covid-19. She was 51.
For the past three years, Young was at Scott Free, serving as a production executive on a number of projects, including playing a key role in shepherding the company’s HBO Max series Raised By Wolves.

“TanNa’s dedication and passion for her work will be eternally worthy of admiration by us all,” Scott Free’s Head of Worldwide TV David W. Zucker said. “She will be deeply missed.”
Before segueing to TV, Young had a long and dedicated career in the arts, serving as a Freelance Producer for Palomino Entertainment Group, General Manager for The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, Associate Director of Administration for City Center of Music & Drama, Managing Director for Asian Artists & Concerts, and Company Manager for New York City Opera.
