Fox has named Rachel Rusch as department head for event series programming, handing her the title of Vice President.

Rusch will report directly to Entertainment President David Madden, developing large-scale limited-run programming, as well as live scripted events for the network.

“Rachel and I worked together for years at Fox Television Studios, where she proved to be one of the most astute story minds I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I consider it no small triumph to have lured her back into working with me again, in the very important area of event series,” said Madden. “She is a literary dynamo, a passionate lover of television and a tremendous partner to creators, and I look forward to her enthusiasm and insights in managing our event series slate.”

Prior to joining Fox, Rusch served as director of Development for Fabrik Entertainment, where she produced drama series “Bosch” for Amazon and set up projects at both broadcast and cable networks for the 2015-16 season.

Previously, she was manager of Programming at Fox Television Studios, where she served as a current executive on series including “The Americans” on FX, “The Killing” on AMC/Netflix and “White Collar” and “Sirens” on USA, as well as developed projects for Lifetime, AMC, FX, ABC Family and VH1.
