Jane Wiseman, the Vice President of Original series at Netflix, where she also served as Head of Comedy, has exited the company after nearly seven years, Deadline reported. The departure comes amid management changes following the elevation of Bela Bajaria to VP Global TV.

“I’m grateful for all that Jane has contributed during her more than six years at Netflix, from building a talented creative team to bringing our members such successful series as ‘Grace and Frankie,’ ‘Ozark,’ ‘Dead to Me,’ and our adult animation slate. We wish her well for the future,”  Bajaria said.

Wiseman’s exit comes days after Channing Dungey, VP Original Content and Head of Drama, stepped down to pursue another opportunity, possibly the top programming job at Warner Bros. TV.

Veteran comedy executive Wiseman joined Netflix‘s original programming team in December 2013 as the first development executive from a network/studio background at the streamer. Before going to Netflix, she spent the past two and a half years at 20th TV-based Chernin Entertainment as SVP Comedy.
