Jane Wiseman, VP Original Series, at Netflix is the latest executive to leave the SVOD giant following the departure of Channing Dungey, VP Original Content, last week. Wiseman had been at Netflix seven years, overseeing the streamer’s comedy content.
The change comes following last month’s departure of Cindy Holland, VP Original Content, and promotion of Bela Bajaria, VP Global TV. Those moves were preceded by the elevation of CCO Ted Sarandos to co-CEO with co-founder Reed Hastings.
“I’m grateful for all that Jane has contributed during her 6+ years at Netflix, from building a talented creative team to bringing our members such successful series as “Grace and Frankie,” “Ozark,” “Dead to Me” and our adult animation slate,” Bajaria said in a statement. “We wish her well for the future.”
Wiseman joined Netflix in 2013 from Chernin Entertainment, where she was SVP Comedy. Prior to that stint, she was SVP Comedy Development at NBC, spearheading programs such as “Parks And Recreation,” “Community” and “Up All Night”.
