Fox Network is replacing the boss with Charlie Collier of AMC

adminOctober 20, 2018




In a surprise move, Fox will call on AMC president Charlie Collier to take over its transmission network in several months, the company announced Friday.

In Hollywood it had been widely assumed that Gary Newman, one of the executive directors of Fox Television Group, would continue in the position. But Mr. Newman told Fox he would be left alone during this television season, which ends in May. Lachlan Murdoch, who will be the executive director of the new Fox, did not want to wait that long to find a replacement.

Collier, a cable professional, has been president of AMC for a decade and helped shepherd hits such as "The Walking Dead", "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul". His new title will be executive entertainment director at Zorro.

It is the last change in a sweeping moment of executive rotation for the transmission networks. Leslie Moonves, the former head of CBS, was expelled last month after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against him. On Thursday, Showtime CEO David Nevins was named director of content for CBS, where he will oversee network executives.
