The corporate restructuring at Disney continues as Variety has reported that two Disney+ executives are moving over 20th Century Studios.
Sarah Shepard, who was previously the Vice President of original scripted content for Disney+, will now become the senior vice president of production for 20th Century Studios. She has worked on many projects for Walt Disney Studios, Pixar Animation, Marvel and Lucasfilm.
While the manager of scripted original content at Disney+, Catherine Hughes is now going to be the manager of creative affairs for 20th Century Studios. She worked on multiple productions across film and TV for the launch of Disney+.
Two other executives have also been picked up 20th Century Studios including Brian Dukes and Rashonda Joplin.
“They are all stellar executives, and we’re fortunate to have them on board at a pivotal moment in our studio’s history, as we prepare to greatly expand our streaming output alongside our slate of theatrical films,” Asbell told Variety.
Disney has been having a major reshuffle of its television and movie studios, streamlining the departments and now that Disney+ is fully operation, there has been a shift to have the studios focused on streaming.
