TV Land Names New VP of Development & Original Programming


NEW YORK: Rose Catherine Pinkney has been appointed to the role of VP of development and original programming at TV Land.

Reporting to Keith Cox, the executive VP of development and original programming at TV Land, Pinkney will assist in managing TV Land’s existing original series and contribute to the development of new projects. She will be based in Los Angeles and is joining Cox’s original productions department alongside fellow VP Brad Gardner in handling strategic development of TV Land’s series.

Prior to her new role, Pinkney served as head of television for Laurence Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy Productions, where she developed content for the broadcast and cable networks including comedy, drama, TV movies, and miniseries.

I’m so excited to have her join our team.”
