Andrea Wong is leaving Sony.
The executive, who held dual roles as president of international production for Sony Pictures Television and president of international for Sony Pictures Entertainment, has been with the company for more than six years. There is no word yet on who will replace her. Sony declined comment.
Based in London, Wong oversaw Sony’s 17 international production companies and was responsible for acquiring and investing in other overseas TV outfits. One of the more high-profile deals she helped to broker during her tenure was buying a majority stake in the British company Left Bank Pictures, the company responsible for Netflix’s Golden Globe-winning drama The Crown.
Prior to joining Sony in 2011, Wong was the president and CEO of Lifetime Networks. There, she worked on the female-skewing cable net’s acquisition of Project Runway.
Earlier in her career, Wong served as the head of alternative programming, special and late night at ABC. During her 14 years at the broadcast network, she developed shows including The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
