FX Promotes Kate Lambert in Animation Push


LOS ANGELES: FX Networks has promoted Kate Lambert to the role of senior VP of series development and animation.

Lambert will oversee the development of animated original series and short-form animated programs for FX Networks, which recently announced plans to increase its animation output for FX and FXX. She will also continue to develop live-action series for those networks. Among her credits at the network, Lambert developed and oversees the animated series Archer.

“From Archer to Atlanta, Kate has done an extraordinary job of developing some of FX’s signature shows and we are thrilled she will be taking an even greater role in guiding the networks’ programming,” said Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “Kate is among the best in the business at forming relationships with the most sought-after producers, writers and talent, and this will be invaluable as we continue to build on FX Networks’ slate of acclaimed and award-winning live-action and animated series.”
