Disney has recently created two new roles within its streaming service, Hulu, a VP of Comedy and VP of Drama.

Overbrook Entertainment executive Dougie Cash has taken on the role of the VP of Drama, Hulu Originals.   He has previously worked on “All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “Cobra Kai.”  He will report to Head of Drama Sasha Silver.

Kelci Parker, will become the VP Comedy, Hulu Originals.  She has been working at Hulu since last year and has worked on many projects including “Only Murders in the Building”,  Marvel’s “Hit-Monkey”, as well as upcoming series “Life & Beth” and “How I Met Your Father”.   She reports to Head of Comedy Billy Rosenberg.

In a statement, Jordan Helman, Head of Scripted Content, Hulu Originals said:

“As we continue to evolve and expand the Hulu Originals team, we could not be more excited by the depth of talent and passion that both Kelci and Dougie bring to their respective new roles.  Kelci’s contributions since arriving at Hulu have been integral to the success of our award-winning comedy slate, and I know the best is yet to come for her as she brings her creative talents to bear on a growing list of titles under her purview. Dougie’s instincts for developing series and films that inspire fandoms of their own is undeniable, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring him on board to join our first-class drama team.”

These two new posts will also no doubt help create more Hulu Originals in the future, but also this will influence Disney’s other streaming services internationally, including Disney+ and Star+.
