Kate Hoenigsberg has returned to NBCUniversal, which has hired her as SVP of Drama Development for Universal Television. Reporting to Vivian Cannon, EVP of Drama Development, she will be responsible for developing series for broadcast, cable and streaming platforms.
Hoenigsberg joins from Quibi, the American short-form streaming platform that generated content for viewing on mobile devices and officially ceased operations in December 2020, just seven months after launching. There, she led on scripted development and programming, working on series such as “The Stranger” and “When The Streetlights Go On”.
Previously, Hoenigsberg spent more than a decade at NBCUniversal, most recently as VP of the Scripted Cable group, where she developed several series such as USA’s “The Sinner,” Bravo’s “Dirty John” and “Imposters,” and E! Entertainment’s “The Arrangement” and “The Royals”.
“We are excited to welcome Kate back to the NBCUniversal family. She’ll play an integral role on our drama team as we continue to increase volume and sell to every platform that needs entertaining, quality content. Kate brings a wealth of knowledge from her time at Quibi, as well as in past roles, and we’re lucky to have her on the team,” said Cannon and Erin Underhill, President of Universal Television, in a joint statement.
