US cablenet Paramount Network has promoted executive Lauren Ruggiero to senior VP of scripted original series.

Lauren Ruggiero

Ruggiero is stepping up from VP of scripted original series to take responsibility for leading the scripted development team and overseeing all scripted programming from development to production.

She joined Viacom-owned Paramount Network in 2015 after starting her career as a trainee in William Morris’s television literary department.

After that, she became coordinator of original programming at rival cablenet AMC, where she worked on series including Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Killing and The Walking Dead.

Based in Viacom’s Hollywood offices, Ruggiero will continue to report to Keith Cox, president, development and production for Paramount Network and TV Land.

“Lauren is a brilliant executive who has been instrumental in building Paramount Network as a home for powerful storytelling, exemplified by our brand-defining hit Yellowstone,” Cox said.

“Together with the series’ immensely talented creators, cast and crew, she has helped make it the biggest success on television across the past two summers and I look forward to her continued success across our growing and impressive scripted slate.”
