The former Netflix exec will take over for Peter Roth as the head of the prolific studio.
Channing Dungey was not on the job market for long. After leaving Netflix on Oct. 9, the executive has landed at Warner Bros., where she’ll take over as chairman of Warner Bros. Television Group.
She’ll succeed Peter Roth, who is stepping down when his current contract ends early next year. She’ll report directly to Warner Media Studios and Networks Group chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff.”This is a homecoming of sorts for Channing, who was a production executive at Warner Bros. early in her career, and we’re excited to have her rejoin the studio,” said Sarnoff.
“Channing is one of the most talented, visionary, creative and respected executives working in television today. She has impeccable taste, a breadth of experience covering all platforms and genres, incredible relationships across the creative community and a keen sense of what’s next and how best to get it to audiences. She’s a great choice to lead the television group as it continues to grow its production operations for HBO Max, while also maintaining its standing as the industry’s leading independent supplier of programming to all outlets.”
