Another top executive is exiting Netflix amid the streamer's restructuring.

Drama exec Nina Wolarsky, who'd been at the company for eight years, is leaving her post as vp original series. There was said to be a change in her role, which caused her to depart. She will help with the transition, with her last day being in November.

Wolarsky's focused was primarily on the non-genre drama series team, where she helped to develop such shows as Orange Is the New Black, The Crown, When They See Us and the upcoming Bridgerton.

The move comes after Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos promoted former local language originals vp Bela Bajaria to global TV chief in September over other top execs at the company, setting off a series of high-profile exits. English language originals head Cindy Holland, drama exec Channing Dungey and comedy vp Jane Wiseman have all left the company in recent weeks. (Dungey, for her part, departed to become chairman of Warner Bros. TV Group.)

Both Sarandos and Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings addressed the turnover in an earnings interview earlier this week. "No one gets to keep the job for free," said Hastings. "You got to earn it every year, which is intensely challenging, and we all love that part of it."
