A year and a half after taking the job, Lauren Corrao is no longer head of programming at Freeform, the network confirmed Friday night.
She first assumed the role in April, 2019, replacing Karey Burke. The network did not elaborate on the circumstances of her departure, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news, Corrao will maintain a relationship with Freeform, developing and producing potential new shows.
Prior to joining Freeform, Corrao spent eight years at Comedy Central, ultimately rising to the role of president, Original Programming and Development, where she oversaw shows such as “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report,” and developed “Chappelle’s Show,” “RENO 911,” “The Sarah Silverman Program,” “Tosh 2.0,” “Workaholics,” as well as the network’s event programming such as the “Comedy Central Roast” franchise and one-hour standup comedy specials.
