The president and CEO of Paramount Premium Group is another important name leaving the company, following the recent departure of Tatiana Rodríguez and JC Acosta
David Nevins, the president and CEO of Paramount Premium Group and CCO of Scripted Series at Paramount+, will leave the company after 12 years, adding his name to that of Tatiana Rodríguez and JC Acosta, other long-standing executives that were announced last week, also leave their roles at Paramount behind.
Nevins, who had taken over as CCO of Scripted Series at Paramount + just a year ago, will leave his position at the end of 2022, as announced in an internal statement reproduced by Variety, in which he claimed to be thinking about “the next phase of my life and my career”.
“Over the past several months I’ve come to the conclusion that I am ready for the next phase of my life and my career,” Nevins said in a note to staff which was obtained by Variety Thursday. “The industry is transforming rapidly, and I am genuinely excited about what the future holds.”
“Most importantly, the leadership team led by Jana Winograde, Gary Levine, Scott Mills and Nicole Clemens are more than ready. The 2023 slate is set, and I believe the coming year’s schedules from Showtime, BET, and Paramount Television Studios are going to be the most ambitious and exciting group of shows we’ve ever put out in a single year. I can’t wait to watch it happen,” he added.
Nevins’ note was followed by another from Bob Bakish, CEO of Paramount Global, in which, in addition to thanking Nevins for his performance, he indicated that Showtime’s OTT teams will move into Paramount Streaming, reporting to Tom Ryan; BET will now move under George Cheeks’ group, as will Paramount Television Studios, where it will continue to operate as a studio alongside CBS Studios.
