Jenna Boyd Joins Disney Branded Television


Jenna Boyd has been named senior VP of development at Disney Branded Television, overseeing the scripted series development team and creatively supervising the production of scripted series pilots for Disney+ and Disney Channel.

Most recently, Boyd oversaw her own production company, Field Day Entertainment, and partnered with The Cartel, where she also served as a manager, to develop a roster of talent and create kids, family and animation content. Prior to launching Field Day Entertainment, Boyd was director of kids and family series at Netflix.

“We are beyond excited to welcome Jenna to Disney Branded Television and feel so lucky to have her joining the team,” said Charlie Andrews, executive VP of live action and unscripted at Disney Branded Television, to whom she will report. “She is a passionate and skilled executive with tremendous vision and an impressive track record of developing hit shows for kids, teens and families. Her extensive expertise in creating breakout series will be instrumental in identifying and creating big, immersive worlds, as well as new series filled with the comedy, music and Disney magic our audiences love.”

“Disney Branded Television has a powerful legacy of creating some of the most iconic kids’ shows of all time, and I’m honored to become part of that legacy of bringing joy to generations of kids and families,” said Boyd. “I look forward to working with Charlie and the outstanding creative team led by Ayo Davis as we continue to build our slate of innovative scripted series that help create lifelong Disney fans.”
