Longtime ITV America executive and Emmy Award-winning producer Jordana Hochman has been appointed within the company to take on the top programming position at the unscripted production company.

ITV America announced on Thursday (June 9) that Hochman will now work as executive vice president and head of programming, expanding her oversight to include productions on the east and west coast. Previously, Hochman worked as head of east coast programming at the company.

Hochman’s credits include the hit series Queer Eye for Netflix, The Real Housewives of New Jersey for Bravo, The First 48 for A&E, the upcoming documentary Exposing Parchman, New York Homicide for Oxygen, Marry Me Now for OWN and Becoming for Disney+. Hochman is also working on upcoming projects for Netflix, Hulu and Starz.

Before joining ITV America in 2013, Hochman worked as vice president of programming for Leftfield Pictures, and vice president of current series at Oxygen Network. She also worked in the non-fiction department at A&E, overseeing the hit series Intervention, as well as previously working at MTV on series such as Total Request Live, True Life and MADE.

“[Hochman's] sense of what buyers need to break through in a tough marketplace, plus years of hands-on production expertise, have been secret weapons for us for nearly a decade. To have Jordana now heading programming across both coasts bodes well for the future of ITV America and our partners,” ITV America CEO David George said.
