Jennifer Salke is the Head of Amazon Studios, overseeing all aspects of television and film development as well as production for Amazon’s global entertainment division.
Over the past two decades, Salke has established herself as one of the most prolific executives in the industry, being a major force behind some of television’s most successful comedy and drama series, including This Is Us, Modern Family, The Blacklist, Superstore, The Good Place, as well as Dick Wolf’s hugely successful Chicago franchise.
Under Salke’s leadership, Amazon signed the ReFRame agreement, supporting a formal action plan to further gender parity in the media industry, sponsored Free the Work, a global initiative to increase the number of underrepresented voices working in entertainment, and teamed with the Hollywood Reporter and WME to launch the Young Executives Fellowship Program, which is designed to create a more diverse and inclusive pipeline for future leaders in entertainment.
Prior to joining Amazon, Salke was President of NBC Entertainment for seven consecutive years, where she was responsible for comedy and drama development, current programming, casting and diversity programming initiatives, as well as the entirety of Universal Television operations. Salke served as Executive Vice President of Creative Affairs at Twentieth Century Fox Television, after joining Twentieth Century Fox as Senior Vice President of Drama Development in 2002.
