Dante Di Loreto has been named president of Television at Chernin Entertainment, where he’ll oversee development and production for the small screen.
Di Loreto comes from WatchWorks Entertainment, a production company he started this year after he and partner Ryan Murphy wrapped on “Glee.” He has also executive produced “American Horror Story” and HBO film “The Normal Heart” with Murphy.
“Dante has consistently delivered inspired television series that capture unique characters and stories. He’s a champion of courageous writers and vision. We look forward to getting started with him,” said Jenno Topping, Chernin’s head of Film and Television.
“Peter and Jenno are two of the most successful and highly regarded producers working today,” added Di Loreto. “Their clear vision and unique strategy make Chernin Entertainment the ideal destination for top tier talent and material in this rapidly evolving industry. I am honored to join their team and look forward to nurturing inventive first-rate programming.”
As a producer, Di Loreto has won three Emmys, two Golden Globes, a Peabody Award and The Andrew Carnegie Medal.
Chernin Entertainment, which produces “New Girl,” recently signed a new two-year overall deal with NBC Entertainment and Universal Television.
