McNamara and ViacomCBS president and CEO, streaming, Tom Ryan, shared the news of the resignation in an email to staff on Thursday, according to Deadline.

In the email, McNamara said the decision was a “truly a bittersweet moment.” Her successor and next move have yet to be announced.

At Paramount+, McNamara was behind a recent slate of programming that included spy drama The Offer: The Making of The Godfather, which stars Kiefer Sutherland (24), and comedy series Guilty Party.

As exec VP of original content at CBS All Access (now Paramount+), McNamara spearheaded original scripted series including Star Trek spin-off Star Trek: Picard, with Patrick Stewart in the lead role.

Prior to that, she spent a decade at CBS Television studios, where she led series including The Good Wife and Elementary.

McNamara joined CBS from fellow US network ABC, where she developed Desperate Housewives and Grey’s Anatomy as VP of drama development.
