Lily Neumeyer to Lead Development at MTV & VH1


NEW YORK: Viacom’s MTV/VH1/Logo Group has elevated Lily Neumeyer to head of development for MTV and VH1.

In her newly expanded position, Neumeyer will manage the unscripted development slate and strategy for both channels. She previously served as head of development for VH1. She will continue to work under Nina L. Diaz, the head of unscripted for MTV and VH1.

Neumeyer joined VH1 in July from A&E, where she was VP of nonfiction and alternative programming. While working for the network, she developed and executive produced Duck Dynasty, Wahlburgers and Nightwatch. Earlier in her career, she worked for MTV, where she developed My Super Sweet 16 and Juvies, among other accomplishments.

“Lily is among the sharpest development executives in the industry, with the track record to prove it,” said Diaz. “She continues to play a big role in driving VH1’s success and I know she’ll bring the same creativity, passion and results to MTV.”

Neumeyer added: “I earned my stripes working at MTV so it holds a very special place in my heart. Under Chris’s leadership, the sky’s the limit in terms of where we can go. I can’t wait to work with Nina and our incredible team to help build on MTV’s legacy of groundbreaking unscripted programming while continuing to bolster VH1’s slate of hits.”
