Bill Bost Promoted to President of TV at Skydance

Bost replaces Marcy Ross, who exited the studio earlier in January

Skydance has promoted Bill Bost to fill the vacated role as president of television for the indie studio.

Bost replaces Marcy Ross, who stepped down earlier in January after six-and-half years leading the studio’s TV division. She segued to a producing deal with Skydance.

“Bill is an integral member of the Skydance executive team, and I’m thrilled to announce his well-deserved promotion,” said Dana Goldberg, Skydance Chief Creative Officer. “Beginning with ‘Grace and Frankie,’ Bill’s oversight and creative contributions to our slate of original television series have been extraordinary. He’s an exceptional executive with strong industry relationships and an eye for fresh talent that will propel Skydance Television to even greater success.”

Bost was most recently senior vice president of television, where he oversaw the studio’s Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” and “Altered Carbon,” as well as the upcoming Isaac Asimov adaptation “Foundation” for Apple TV+. Bost began his career at the company as the executive assistant to CEO and founder David Ellison.

“It’s been the opportunity of a lifetime to be a part of Skydance from the beginning and I’m honored to be leading a team that creates great storytelling across all genres in television,” Bost said. “It’s an incredible time to be a content creator and I’m excited to continue to build on the TV studio’s success as we expand and develop our slate of premium series at this pivotal time.”
