U.S. cable net Sundance Channel has appointed Nena Rodrigue as its senior vice president of original production and development.

Rodrigue, most recently an EVP and exec producer at Law and Order prodco Wolf Films, will be responsible for developing and overseeing Sundance Channel’s slate of original productions, and will report to Sarah Barnett, who was recently promoted to president and general manager of Sundance Channel.
