Showtime has named both Danielle De Jesus and Dave Binegar as Vice Presidents of scripted programming. Based in Los Angeles, De Jesus and Binegar will be developing original scripted comedy, drama and limited series for the network. They will report to Amy Israel, EVP, Scripted Programming. “Danielle is a thoughtful and dynamic executive, and we fully expect her to emerge as a potent force developing the next generation of great Showtime series,” Israel said“In doing so, she’ll join Dave, who has risen up our ranks thanks to his savvy eye for finding talent and projects and nurturing the very best from them.”

 De Jesus was most recently SVP of Development at Courtney Kemp’s production company. During her tenure as SVP of Development at Kemp’s "End of Episode," she managed a slate of development and television productions including the pilot "Get Christie Love" and drama in development, "Dirty Thirty." De Jesus played a large role in developing multiple spinoffs for the Kemp-created "Power," including"Ghost," "Raising Kanan," "Force and Influence," serving as an executive producer.

Before joining "End of Episode" three years ago, De Jesus served as Director of Current Programming at UCP, where she managed such shows as "Unsolved," "Colony," "Playing House," "The Magicians" and "The Royals." She also served as Manager of Programming and Development at ABC Family, where she worked on programs including "Make it or Break It," "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," Melissa and Joey and "The Lying Game". She also was involved in the development of unscripted series Spellmageddon and "The Vineyard."

At Showtime, Binegar recently worked on crime thriller "Your Honor" and is responsible for the acclaimed "Work In Progress," which he discovered as an independently produced pilot at "Sundance," and "Back To Life." Additionally, he brought to the network "The End," an upcoming half-hour dark comedy about death and dying, and developed the upcoming survival epic "Yellowjackets." Binegar began his career at Disney, where he worked for Pixar.
