AMC Networks has promoted Jennifer Caserta (pictured) from exec VP and general manager to president and general manager of IFC, effective immediately.

Based in the company’s headquarters in New York City, she reports to AMC Networks’ chief operating officer Ed Carroll.

In a statement, Carroll said:  “Jen has been a tremendous asset to the network, leading IFC’s successful rebrand and its transition last year to an ad-supported model, and implementing an original programming strategy that’s resonating with viewers.”

Among her recent commissions, Caserta greenlit the docu-comedy Whisker Wars. In 2009, she served as executive producer on the docu-series Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut), which landed an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Nonfiction Series.
