Prior to joining Freeform in 2016, Helman was Director of Comedy Development at Warner Brothers Television, working on series including "Two Broke Girls," "Undateable," "Selfie," "One Big Happy" and the adaption of "Green Eggs and Ham." Before her time at WBTV, Jana started her career as an assistant in the TV and motion picture literary departments at Endeavor (now WME).

Eric Pertilla joined CBS All Access in August 2018 as Director, Original Content. Since joining the team, Pertilla has supported the development of CBS All Access series including THE GOOD FIGHT, WHY WOMEN KILL, THE TWILIGHT ZONE and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, among others.
