Amazon Studios’ Roy Price: Inside the Fall of a Top Executive (and What’s Next)

Amazon Studios COO Albert Cheng, a former Disney/ABC digital exec, is taking over on an interim basis, and the hunt is on for a new — and, according to sources, preferably female — content head. Amazon approached Paramount Television president Amy Powell over the summer but Powell, sources say, is no longer a contender. Other potential candidates include Amazon’s head of event series Sharon Tal Yguado, who helped turn The Walking Dead into a global phenomenon when she was at Fox International. – Kim Masters & Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter http://ift.tt/2yyTvxc
