Madden, who is president of programming for the Entertainment Networks Group and AMC Studios, will step down later this month.
The Entertainment Networks Group lists the company’s four scripted networks, AMC, BBC America, SundanceTV and IFC, and AMC Premiere. It’s run by Sarah Barnett, president of the Entertainment Networks Group for AMC Networks.
“We are already seeing the benefits of our entertainment networks working more closely together – the next logical strategic step is to integrate AMC Studios into this same group, so that the people making our celebrated series are more closely coordinated with the marketing, scheduling and publicity teams who connect our shows to passionate fans,” Barnett said. “We believe this new structure best positions our nimble organization for success in an increasingly competitive environment.” She added that Madden would be missed.
Madden’s programming team has worked on shows including The Walking Dead, Better Call Saul and Killing Eve. “I’m ready to move on and focus on new opportunities in the rapidly expanding content space, leaving the current programming and studio operations in good hands and positioned well for the future,” said Madden.
