Apple hires former Paramount & Fox executive to oversee comedy programming


As it continues to expand its programming team, Apple has reportedly poached a Paramount executive to oversee its comedy efforts. TBI Vision reports that Apple has hired Dana Tuinier from The Paramount Network, where she served as vice president of development and original programming.

Interestingly enough, The Paramount Network only launched 11 days ago as a rebranded version of Spike with its parent company Viacom aiming to align its properties under the Paramount name. At Paramount, Tuinier helped rollout comedies such as Younger, Teachers, and First Wives Club.

Prior to her time at Paramount Network, Tuinier acted as director of current programming at Fox, working on New Girl, Bob’s Burgers, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odessy, Almost Human, and Glee.

At Apple, Tuinier will report to head of development Matt Cherniss and act as creative executive for comedy within the Worldwide Video unit. TBI Vision says Tuinier will specifically oversee the upcoming comedy series produced by Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Wiig.
Apple has been expanding its original programming efforts at incredible pace, both in terms of content and hires. While the iPhone maker has yet to confirm any of its work, a slew of shows are said to be in the works.

Apple has reportedly ordered dramas with Octavia Spencer , Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston , as well as a pair of sci-fi series from Steven Knight and Steven Spielberg. Furthermore, an HGTV-like docuseries about luxury homes is also purportedly under development.
