ITV America has promoted producer and longtime exec Jordana Hochman to EVP and head of programming at the factual-focused firm, which is behind reality shows such as Queer Eye and Hell’s Kitchen.
New York-based Hochman, who was previously head of east coast programming, expands her remit to include productions on both coasts of the US, taking on the top programming position at the unscripted group, which also produces titles such as Love Island, Alone and The Chase.
During her tenure at ITV America, Hochman has worked on shows including Netflix’s Queer Eye, Bravo’s The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, A&E’s The First 48 and upcoming documentary Exposing Parchman (produced alongside Roc Nation), Oxygen’s New York Homicide, OWN’s Marry Me Now and Disney+ docuseries Becoming.
Hochman originally joined ITV America in 2013, first serving as VP of programming at Leftfield Pictures. Prior to that, she was VP of current series at Oxygen Network and worked in the non-fiction department at A&E, overseeing series including Intervention. She began her production career at MTV, working on series such as Total Request Live, True Life and MADE.
“Jordana has played a key role in ITV America’s success, elevating our content through stellar work on shows like Queer Eye and so many others,” said ITV America CEO David George.
