Veteran Spike Exec Assumes Expanded Post

NEW YORK, May 11, 2010 - Spike TV has promoted Sharon Levy to executive vice president, original series and animation, it was announced by Kevin Kay, president of the network, to whom she reports. Based in Spike's Los Angeles offices, Levy was formerly senior vice president of original series.

Levy will continue to oversee production and development for all of Spike's expanding portfolio of original series. Last week, the network announced its most ambitious development slate to date which included many of Levy's projects including pilots "Weapon X," "Alternative History," and "On the Rocks."

In her new role, she will expand the network's slate of original animation targeted to young men. Last year, the network's original animated special, "Afro Samurai: Resurrection," received a Primetime Emmy Award (R) for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.

"We're thrilled to have Sharon in this key original programming role," said Kay. "She has been instrumental in bringing top-flight talent to Spike. Her ability to connect with the Spike viewer has resulted in developing many of the network's top rated series. Now we look forward to develop original animation using her talents for our guy-centric audience."

Levy joined Spike in 2005 and has overseen the development of many of the network's most ambitious and successful series including "Deadliest Warrior," "Pros vs. Joes," "1000 Ways to Die," "MANswers," "4th and Long," "DEA," "MXC" and the highly successful weekend afternoon auto-related shows, "The Power Block."

Prior to joining Spike TV, Levy worked at Stone & Company Entertainment (formally known as Stone Stanley Entertainment) from 2000-05 as executive vice president programming/executive producer. She was responsible for creating, developing and/or served as executive producer for a number of broadcast and cable series, including ABC's reality series "Mole," NBC's "Fame," and Spike TV's hit faux-reality series, "The Joe Schmo Show." Levy has also produced programs for Fox, WB, Comedy Central and MTV.

From 2000-2001, Levy served as director of public relations at Comedy Central in Los Angeles where she launched publicity campaigns for the hit series "The Man Show" and "South Park." Previously, she was senior publicist at Sci-Fi Channel from 1999-2000, where she worked on "Mystery Science Theater 3000."
