Friedman will continue to report to Sarah Barnett, president and general manager for SundanceTV, and will oversee the strategic planning and scheduling of SundanceTV’s linear, TV Everywhere, and on-demand services in his new role.

In a statement, Barnett said Friedman “has impressively helped transition SundanceTV to an ad-supported, multi-platform world, all the while elevating and amplifying our buzzy and distinctive original programming.”
