Original exec makes Tremendous! move

Tremendous! Entertainment has hired fellow US-based prodco Original Productions’ interim CEO to work across its development slate.

Sarah Whalen

Sarah Whalen becomes exec VP of development and will be based in LA, with a remit to expand Tremendous!’s unscripted programming slate across broadcast, cable and digital.

Whalen was most recently in interim charge of Original alongside Ernie Avila, after Philip Segal stepped down as CEO last year. Before that, she had been exec VP of programming and development.

Whalen spent more than 15 years at Original, where she worked on shows such as Deadliest Catch and Bering Sea Gold for Discovery Channel, CNBC’s Jay Leno’s Garage, The Confession Tapes for Netflix and Ice Road Truckers for History.

Her arrival at Tremendous! follows the exit of former head of development Ronak Kordestani, who joined US-based unscripted prodco 3 Ball Entertainment in August.
