Jeremy Elice Named Vice President, Original Programming, Series

Ben Davis Appointed Director of Development and Current Series

New York, NY, March 10, 2008 - Rainbow Media Holdings LLC announced today two promotions in AMC's Original Programming department. Jeremy Elice has been named Vice President of Original Programming, Series for AMC; he was formerly Director of Development for the network. Ben Davis, formerly Manager of Development for AMC has been promoted to Director of Development and Current Series. Elice will oversee development of series programming to maintain AMC's commitment to the delivery of cinematic and high-quality television. Davis will be responsible for managing the creative aspects of the network's current series and will continue to be involved in development. Both Elice and Davis are based in Los Angeles and report to Christina Wayne, Senior Vice President of Original Programming for AMC.

The promotions come on the heels of the network's first Golden Globe wins for original series Mad Men and the debut of its latest dramatic series Breaking Bad, created by Vince Gilligan. In addition, AMC recently announced an extensive slate of new original series in development, including Fort Smith (Robert Cochran); Uninvited Guest (Harley Peyton); An Untitled Alison Anders Western (Alison Anders & Terry Graham); and Green Fields (Nicky Silver).

"Jeremy's discerning taste and expertise in the film and television industry has been an integral part of fielding incoming scripted material, and he played an instrumental role in AMC's acquisition of Breaking Bad," stated Wayne. "Likewise, Ben has grown tremendously within this department and his experience in script development was an asset to the network as it made its foray into original programming. His insights ensure that AMC continues to be a destination for the biggest and brightest talent."

Elice joined AMC's Original Programming department in 2006 as the Director of Development based in Los Angeles. Prior to joining AMC, Elice held positions as Director of Creative & Strategic Development at Mutual Film Company, and Executive Assistant in the Development department at the FX Network. He received a Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Davis began his career at AMC in 2004 as an Executive Assistant in the Programming department. He was later promoted to Manager of Development and relocated to AMC's Los Angeles office, where he played an essential role in establishing AMC as a creative force in the entertainment community. Prior to joining AMC, he was an Assistant at Scout Productions and Scott Rudin Productions. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Tulane University in New Orleans.
