Jennifer Salke Appointed as New Head of Amazon Studios, Exiting NBC Entertainment as President



The search for replacement of ousted Amazon Studios head Roy Price is over, with NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke named as new head of Amazon Studios. The broadcast network is expected to announce a replacement for her shortly, with Salke expected to remain at NBC for the transition before segueing to the new job.

“What stood out about Jen was the deep relationships she has nurtured with creators and talent over her career, spanning NBCU, Twentieth Century Fox, and Aaron Spelling Productions,” said Jeff Blackburn, SVP, Business Development & Entertainment, Amazon. “She’s built an impeccable reputation as a big leader who emphasizes creativity, collaboration, and teamwork.”

Salke was a finalist for the job. She, along with A+E Networks president and CEO Nancy Dubuc, had emerged as leading candidates out of a pool of accomplished female TV and film executives who reportedly had been considered. They both met with top Amazon executives, including chairman Jeff Bezos, earlier this month. Dubuc pulled herself out of consideration yesterday.

“I’m incredibly excited about the future at Amazon Studios,” Salke said. “In the studio’s relatively short existence they have innovated, disrupted, and created characters that are already an indelible part of pop-culture. I am both honored and emboldened by the opportunity to lead this extraordinary business. Of course, this is also bittersweet for me. NBC has been an amazing home – creatively, professionally and personally – and I leave there knowing that the work we did had groundbreaking impact. It’s an exciting time to be a content creator, and I look forward to being on the front lines of an innovative business with storytelling at its heart.”

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
