Channing Dungey

Dungey’s 2018 exit from her position as president of ABC Entertainment left industry pros wondering what her next venture would be. But by year’s end, Netflix had announced Dungey had been hired as VP of original content and would be working closely with Cindy Holland to develop original programming for the streaming service. Dungey currently oversees pivotal deals with top scribes—including Shonda Rhimes and Kenya Barris, with whom she worked at ABC—and Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions.
