‘Mad Men’ Exec At AMC Abruptly Exits; Christina Wayne On Her Way To Starz?
2ND UPDATE: The word to me is that Christina Wayne is going to Starz. But I’m also getting off-the-record denials from folks inside the company.
UPDATE: Yes, it’s true. She’s certainly received a slew of press in recent months: EW, Portfolio, W magazine.
The Televisionary blog is reporting that Christina Wayne has “quit” AMC effective today. She was just promoted last year to SVP for Scripted Series and Mini-Series at the basic cabler. “No reason was given for her abrupt exit and it’s not immediately clear where Wayne will head next or if she had secured a position elsewhere,” said the blog, relying on a source inside the network. Wayne has served as AMC’s head of original scripted programming since 2005 and helped oversee AMC’s signature hit dramas Mad Men and Breaking Bad. (See my previous, SANITY PREVAILS!
