A+E Networks has named Laura Fleury (pictured, left) as LMN’s VP of programming and development, while Thomas Moody (right) becomes senior VP of programming, planning and acquisitions for LMN and FYI.
Both executives, who begin their new positions immediately, will report to Jana Bennett, president of FYI and LMN.
Moody will oversee the program planning, strategy and acquisitions for both LMN and newly announced network FYI, the rebranded BIO Channel. He has been with A+E Networks since 2001, and was most recently in charge of developing and executing the scheduling and acquisition strategies for A&E and BIO.
He has also developed and exec produced Hoarders, Private Sessions, Biography and Celebrity Ghost Stories.
Fleury moves to LMN from A&E, where she developed and exec produced such series as Beyond Scared Straight, The First 48, Parking Wars and The Killer Speaks. She had also developed and executive produced series for the BIO channel.
In her new role, she is responsible for all original programming for LMN.
“I am confident that these multi-talented executives, tapped from within A+E Networks, will bring a breadth of experience and enormous intelligence to these important new leadership roles at FYI and LMN,” said Bennett. “Both Tom and Laura bring a track record of significant accomplishment to the table. Their vision, instincts and passion will be instrumental as we build these two brands into powerful platforms.”
