Nina Lederman, Sony Pictures Television’s EVP, Global Scripted Development, is set to exit amid the company’s slowdown, as reported by Deadline. Lederman is leaving in June after six years heading up global scripted development and programming for SPT, with the group understood to be pivoting focus to the core businesses of local international production.

Based in Los Angeles, Lederman joined SPT in 2018 to head the global scripted team, working closely with indies in the UK and Australia such as “The Crown” producer Left Bank, “His Dark Materials” maker Bad Wolf and “Artful Dodger” indie Curio Media. As EVP, Global Scripted Development, she worked on development, U.S. pre-sales and international co-productions, with credits including Netflix’s “My Life with the Walter Boys” and MGM+’s “Nine Bodies In A Mexican Morgue”.

Lederman’s role will be eliminated and responsibilities reallocated within the group. She will continue to EP select projects currently in development with SPT’s international production group. “Nina has been a wonderful colleague and friend, helping so many of us navigate the choppy waters of international television,” said SPT President, Wayne Garvie. “She leaves us with fond memories and our best wishes for the future.”

Lederman is an experienced TV producer who used to work in a similar role for All3Media America. Prior to that, she was at Lifetime Television for seven years as SVP, Scripted Programming and Development, where she developed the critically acclaimed series UnReal.
