KEITH COX NAMED PRESIDENT, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION OF PARAMOUNT NETWORK AND TV LAND

New York, NY - February 21, 2017 - Keith Cox has been elevated to the expanded role of President, Development and Production for Paramount Network and TV Land, it was announced today by Kevin Kay, President of TV Land, CMT and Spike TV (soon to be Paramount Network). In this new position, Cox will oversee the strategic development and production of all series for both TV Land and the newly-announced Paramount Network - slated for early 2018 - which will feature distinctive, high-quality scripted and non-scripted original programming.

"Keith has done an incredible job in building TV Land's slate of strong original scripted series over the last 10 years and reigniting the brand, and I'm thrilled to work with him as he continues to bring his strong creativity and unparalleled talent relationships to the Paramount Network," said Kay.

Cox added, "I am so excited to have the privilege to help build a new premium channel from the ground up with The Paramount Network. It is an extraordinary opportunity to set a new bar for high-quality, character-driven content that resonates with audiences around the world."

As one of TV Land's executive producers, Cox developed, produced and launched all of the channel's current original scripted programming. He ushered in new eras at the network, including the first foray into scripted original series with the smash hit "Hot in Cleveland," which ran for six seasons and is now syndicated by CBS Television Distribution.

He then helped shape TV Land's new 2015 slate of captivating, unique original series aimed at audiences in their 30s and 40s beginning with Darren Star's "Younger," now entering its fourth season after garnering critical acclaim and massive buzz over the last two years. And the network's hit comedy "Teachers," now in its second season, continues to score series highs.

Upcoming projects that Cox has developed include: "Nobodies," executive produced by powerhouse comedy team Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, which has already been picked up for a second season prior to its March 2017 series premiere; "American Woman," a 1970s period dramedy executive produced by Emmy(R) winners John Wells ("Shameless," "The West Wing") and John Riggi ("30 Rock"); and the one hour pitch black anthology "Heathers," based on the cult classic film.

Prior to joining TV Land, Cox held the post of Executive Vice President, Comedy and Alternative Development at the WB Television Network, where he oversaw all of the network's half-hour and reality development of such hits as Ashton Kutcher's "Beauty and the Geek" and 51 Minds' "Surreal Life." He was also instrumental in the development of such critical successes as "Starlet" and "Pop Stars 2." Cox joined the WB in 2001 as Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming at the WB.

Earlier, he worked at Greenblatt/Janollari as Vice President of Comedy and Drama Development, and he was part of the team that developed "Six Feet Under," "The Hughleys," and the online cult favorite, "Heat Vision and Jack" directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jack Black and Christine Taylor. Cox began his career as Director of Programming during the early days of FX before joining Warner Brothers Television, where he developed several shows for NBC's powerhouse Thursday night line-up.
