GSN Taps Amy Introcaso-Davis to Lead Programming Department
The veteran cable executive, who stepped down as senior vp original programming at Oxygen last summer, will be responsible for growing GSN's portfolio.
Amy Introcaso-Davis has been tapped as head of programming at Game Show Network.
She’ll join GSN as executive vp programming beginning Nov. 1, reporting to president and CEO David Goldhill and based in Los Angeles.
At GSN, she’ll be responsible for developing and acquiring programming designed to grow GSN's core audience of adult females.
“Amy has an impressive track record of creating phenomenally successful and culturally relevant content. We're particularly pleased to have her join GSN in a year when we've substantially increased our original programming and acquired some exciting series to engage our audience,” Goldhill said in a statement. “Amy's creative vision and leadership will be critical as we continue to enhance our programming choices for our viewers.”
Added Introcaso-Davis: "As a fan, I have loved watching updates of such iconic series as The Newlywed Game on GSN. I am energized by the network's commitment to increasing original production and am excited by the prospect of leading the charge to redefine the game show for this multiplatform world.”
Introcaso-Davis led programming and development at Bravo and Oxygen during transformational periods at both networks.
At Bravo, she developed and executive produced Queer Eye for the Straight Guy -- the series that helped re-define Bravo -- as well as Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List and the Real Housewives franchise.
She segued from Bravo to Oxygen in 2008. Her three-year--plus tenure as head of programming at Oxygen was marked by ratings growth in the network’s core demographic of young women. But Oxygen’s ratings surge may have plateaued. And Introcaso-Davis left Oxygen last summer in the wake of disappointing runs for heavily hyped series The World According to Paris and Glee reality spinoff The Glee Project.
