U.S. net A&E Network has promoted Devon Graham Hammonds (pictured) to VP of development and programming.
In the new role, Hammonds – who was previously director of non-fiction programming – will be charged with developing original factual series, while overseeing a team of programmers and a raft of existing factual programs for the network. She will continue to report to Elaine Frontain Bryant, exec VP and head of programming, and work out of the network’s offices in New York.
Hammonds boarded A&E in 2012 where she served as an independent producer for such networks as TLC, WB and Bloomberg. As A&E’s director of non-fiction programming, she is credited with developing and producing such series as the Emmy-nominated Wahlburgers, Donnie Loves Jenny and Nightwatch.
“Devon has an incredible track record and brings an enormous amount of energy to the network,” said Frontain Bryant. “She always has her finger on the pulse of television and her expertise in hands-on production makes her invaluable to the A&E team.”
