Condé Nast Entertainment has hired Marvel Entertainment’s Sarah Amos as vice president of development and production for non-fiction TV and documentaries.

The appointment is part of the company’s global entertainment strategy and efforts to grow a film, TV and audio business that leverages the company’s portfolio of brands and IP.

Amos (pictured) will report to Helen Estabrook, who heads CNE’s film and television division.

The executive was previously VP of development for Marvel Entertainment’s New Media division, overseeing the video, live streaming and audio content slate for Marvel.com and third-party platforms, including SiriusXM and the company’s non-fiction content for Disney+.

She served as an executive producer on the Disney+ original series Marvel’s Behind The Mask, Marvel’s Hero Project and Marvel’s 616, a collaboration with Supper Club, the team behind Netflix’s Chef’s Table.

Prior to Marvel, Amos worked in production capacities at ABC News, including for its flagship program, World News with Diane Sawyer.

The move marks the second Disney+-related hire for CNE over the course of the past year, with former SVP of content for the streamer, Agnes Chu, joining CNE last July as president.

CNE has produced such unscripted content as Netflix’s Last Chance U and spinoff series Last Chance U: Basketball, as well as the Oscar-nominated short Yes People from the New Yorker studio.

There are projects in development across all platforms, CNE stated, including GQ Studio’s The Great Chinese Art Heist, to be directed by Jon Chu for Warner Brothers.
