Sony Pictures Television Ups Suzanne Prete for Game Shows


Suzanne Prete has been elevated to president of game shows for Sony Pictures Television.

Prete and her team are behind Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. A 29-year company veteran, Prete is also a driving force in expanding these syndicated powerhouses into multifaceted franchises, including prime-time specials such as Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Celebrity Jeopardy! and Jeopardy! Masters. Prete and her team sold and produced a brand-new U.S. adaptation of the format Raid the Cage for CBS and oversee The $100,000 Pyramid on ABC, currently in its seventh season.

“We established our dedicated game show group just two years ago, and under Suzanne’s leadership, our game show division has excelled beyond even our lofty expectations,” said Ravi Ahuja, chairman of global television studios and corporate development at Sony Pictures Television (SPT). “The team has expanded SPT’s established franchises and leveraged our extensive library of formats to create innovative ‘radical reboots’ while simultaneously developing original content for today’s buyers and audiences. She has built an exceptional team that has quickly achieved outstanding growth and become a best-in-class production operation, making significant contributions to the overall success of SPT.”
