Channing Dungey Named ABC Entertainment President, Replacing Paul Lee https://t.co/GPqMtwoVe4— Variety (@Variety) February 17, 2016
According to Variety, the white dude that used to be in charge was ousted during a power struggle with another white dude.
Why am i posting this here? Well, Channing Dungey was one of the people behind the development of many of ONTD's favourite and diverse shows...even the ones we love to hate(!) such as:-“Scandal,” “Quantico,” “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” “How to Get Away With Murder” and “American Crime.”.
No, her awesomeness doesn't stop there, she started her career in film and working in the development of films such as, “Bridges of Madison County", “The Matrix” and “Practical Magic".
We look forward to what changes Dungey will further bring the the network.
