TV and Film, From Conde Nast (NYT / Media Decoder)

Condé Nast is coming to Hollywood. The magazine publisher’s biggest titles, especially Vogue and Vanity Fair, have long been hardwired into the movie capital. But Condé Nast as a company has been notably absent even as other publishers — Hearst, Playboy, and National Geographic among them — have sought to diversify into television and movies. Condé Nast appointed Dawn Ostroff, former chief of The CW network, to head a new division aimed at producing and distributing original TV and film entertainment. THR: In the new position, Ostroff will be responsible for development, creation, production, and distribution of original television, film, and digital initiatives based on the company’s brands. NY Observer: After working at UPN and Lifetime, Ostroff launched The CW, the CBS-Warner Bros. venture that dominates the teen demographic with shows like Gossip Girl and America’s Next Top Model.
