AMC Networks is looking for a new entertainment chief.
Sarah Barnett, AMC Networks Entertainment Group president, will be leaving the company after Labor Day, she said today.
After her exit, the company’s entertainment networks—AMC/AMC+, BBC America, IFC and Sundance TV—and AMC Studios will report to COO Ed Carroll on an interim basis.
“This is a year that has confronted us with radical change on multiple fronts,” said Barnett in a statement. “After a lot of consideration—and with a slightly breaking heart—I have decided that it is the right time for me to follow my curiosity and leave things in the very capable hands of the outstanding team at AMC Networks.”
