Tracey Zaradich Lentz Joins GSN as Director of Development

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- Tracey Zaradich Lentz has been named to the position of Director of Development for GSN, the network for games, from serving as Manager of Programming at Showtime Networks, Inc. since November 2000. The announcement was made today by Ian Valentine, Senior Vice President of Programming for GSN, to whom she will report.

Lentz will be based in GSN's Santa Monica headquarters, where, effective immediately, she will focus on developing new programming and oversee a portion of the current production slate for the 56 million home network. Lentz will assist the programming team by bringing in new creative talent and exploring alternative programming options as the network continues to increase its audience among Adults 25 - 54. The Sony Pictures Entertainment and Liberty Media-owned network broadened its programming brand to include reality, alternative sports, talent-driven documentaries and casino genres in addition to game show series last year.

"Tracey has a strong background in all forms of programming and she has great creativity," said Valentine. "As we continue to broaden our current programming base beyond the proscenium game shows, we will benefit greatly through her insights, relationships and fresh point of view."

In her previous role at Showtime, Lentz developed series projects and served as a current executive. She shepherded the Emmy nominated and WGA award-winning "Penn & Teller: BULLSHIT!" series from development through production in multiple seasons and served as the current executive on such critically acclaimed series as "Huff" and "The L Word." Prior to Showtime, Lentz served in the programming departments at The WB Network, Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) and Touchstone Television.

Lentz graduated magna cum laude at University of California, Los Angeles, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communications. She is currently a part of the next generation council at the Motion Picture TV Fund and is leading the effort to launch the Shavelson Television Network on the campus.

GSN, the Network for Games, is the only U.S. television network dedicated to game-related programming and interactive game playing. The network features game shows, reality series, documentaries, alternative sports programs and casino games. As the industry leader in interactivity, GSN features 84 hours per week of interactive programming, which allows viewers a chance to win prizes by playing along with GSN's televised games via GSN.com. Reaching 56 million Nielsen homes, GSN is distributed in the U.S. through all major cable systems and satellite providers. The network is jointly owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment and Liberty Media Corporation. For further media information, visit GSN's press website at corp.gsn.com.
