Rusch rejoins the 21st Century Fox business having more recently been director of development at Red Arrow Entertainment-owned producer Fabrik Entertainment, where she produced Amazon’s procedural Bosch.
At Fox she will oversee all limited run programming. The current slate includes the 2016 live-action version of musical movie Grease.
She replaces former senior VP, event series Shana Waterman and VP Jeni Mulein.
“Rachel and I worked together for years at Fox Television Studios, where she proved to be one of the most astute story minds I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. I consider it no small triumph to have lured her back into working with me again, in the very important area of event series,” said David Madden, who replaced Kevin Reilly as president, entertainment at Fox, last year.
