Drew Worobow continues in his role as VP of AMC Studios, also reporting to Davis.

“It’s a pleasure to acknowledge the efforts of our talented and engaged programming executives with these promotions and expanded responsibilities,” Davis said. “Ben and Josh hit the ground running from the moment they arrived and have helped develop and direct the course of some of our most significant shows, working closely with Jack, Alexis and Amanda. Drew has been instrumental to our studio business, and Noel has provided excellent leadership of our international programming efforts, working with Corey and Sam to find remarkable stories from around the world that engage and delight viewers.

“I look forward to moving into 2024 with a remarkable team that is meaningfully contributing to our company’s success by working with our creative partners to share unforgettable stories and characters with fans across our distribution platforms.”
