The CW Bolsters Unscripted Team


The CW has tapped former NBCUniversal exec Betsy Slenzak as VP of unscripted programming.

Slenzak, who most recently served as VP of entertainment unscripted content at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, will be tasked with developing and running current production on alternative reality series, events and specials.

She reports to Heather Olander, head of unscripted programming, who joined the network earlier this year. “Betsy is a talented executive with stellar relationships within the industry and a keen eye for developing successful unscripted formats,” said Olander. “Betsy has a proven track record of producing buzzworthy hits, and we are fortunate to welcome her to The CW as we continue to evolve our unscripted programming slate.”
