Peter Johnson To Step Down As Mrc President Of TV Development

Exclusive: Peter Johnson will be departing Mrc where he served as President of Television development for the past two years. He is leaving to pursue other opportunities, including producing.

Johnson’s exit follows a string of TV executive hires at Mrc over the past couple of months, led by Ucp’s Elise Henderson joining as President of Television, overseeing Mrc’s slate of development, current programming as well as joint venture and production partnerships. Since her appointment in April, Henderson has built up her team by bringing in several people, most notably Mary-Claire Manley who joined as a VP from Ucp.

Mrc’s TV series roster includes Ozark on Netflix and the upcoming The Great for Hulu, written by Tony McNamara and starring Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult, and The Outsider for HBO, starring Ben Mendelsohn, with Jason Bateman directing and executive producing.
