Andrea Wong helmed Sony Picture Television as the international production president of Sony Pictures Television and the international president of Sony Pictures Entertainment, but it was reported earlier today that she is leaving both posts.
It’s been reported that Sony is currently seeking a replacement for her vacancy, though the company declined to comment. The specifics of her departure have yet to be determined.
Based in London, Wong had been in charge of Sony Picture Television’s portfolio of international production companies. Under Sony Pictures Television, she fought to invest in Left Bank Pictures, which proved a winning choice when Netflix’s The Crown came home with two Golden Globes.
Prior to taking a job with Sony, Wong served as president and CEO of Lifetime Networks. It was during her time there that Army Wives became Lifetime’s top-rated original series and it was her effort that also saw Lifetime’s acquisition of Project Runway.
Even further back, she spent fourteen years at ABC as executive vice president, head of alternative programming, specials and late night at ABC. Under her wing, shows like The Bachelor, Dancing With the Stars and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition were developed.
