As internal fights for power amidst the executives of the ABC Entertainment get fierce, there is a change in the higher order hierarchy. Paul Lee, one of the seniors, was made to resign and Channing Dungey took over as the chief of the ABC group. The fight for creative control has finally come to an end. Channing Dungey who was the former head of the ABC’s drama has now become the first black woman president. The elevation of Dungey was considered as a significant breakthrough by the stalwarts of the industry. The diversity is finally brought into the ranking system with Dungey gaining the power.
Dungey is also referred to be gifted with her abounding creative talents. She is considered as a perfect fit for the position. She has an excellent track record and has been associated with developing interesting and compelling programs that have aspired innovation. She has worked on several exciting drama series such as “Thrilled and humbled,” “Once Upon a Time,” and “Scandal.” The executive vice president, Patrick Moran will henceforth take over Lee’s responsibilities and duties. Lee’s new boss, Sherwood was continually insisting on creating innovative program series. But Lee had always resisted to the demands. These issues eventually attributed Lee to resign.
The ABC Entertainment Group was looking out for a change in the hierarchy for more than a year, and with the forceful resignation of Lee, things fell into place. Lee had taken over as the chief in the year 2010, and his departure remains a surprise to many. During his tenure, he had contributed to some great drama series such as “Shark Tank” and “Modern Family.” These soaps remained the prime-time attraction for many. But as the ratings of the ABC Group continued to decline, the inevitable change in the hierarchy was brought in forcefully. The urgent replacement in the executive category is a blowing surprise.
