Veteran Viacom exec to oversee series development for TV Land, Paramount Network

TV Land programming executive Keith Cox has been promoted to president of production for TV Land and Spike TV – soon to be rebranded The Paramount Network.

Cox will add the strategic development and production of content for The Paramount Network to his current duties as head of content development for TV Land. Over the past decade while at TV Land, Cox has developed, produced and launched the network’s lineup of scripted fare, including Hot In Cleveland and Younger, as well as upcoming new series Nobodies.

The announcement comes on the heels of the departure of Spike TV executive vice president of original series Sharon Levy.

“Keith has done an incredible job in building TV Land’s slate of strong original scripted series over the last 10 years and reigniting the brand, and I’m thrilled to work with him as he continues to bring his strong creativity and unparalleled talent relationships to the Paramount Network,” said Spike TV president Kevin Kay in a statement. 

Cox added in a statement: “I am so excited to have the privilege to help build a new premium channel from the ground up with The Paramount Network. It is an extraordinary opportunity to set a new bar for high-quality, character-driven content that resonates with audiences around the world.”
