Jack Ryan Producer Marcy Ross Steps Down as Skydance TV President
Marcy Ross, Skydance TV President, will be leaving her position after six years. She will be changing gears and will produce through an overall deal with Skydance Television.
Ross will still serve as executive producer for Grace and Frankie, Altered Carbon, Condor, Foundation, and Jack Ryan.
"Six and a half years ago, we had the idea to expand Skydance beyond film into television. Marcy took that idea and through her leadership forged Skydance Television into a reality from the ground up. She was responsible for building a bold slate of exciting series such as Grace and Frankie, Jack Ryan and Altered Carbon just to name a few. I'm extremely grateful for her friendship and am pleased we will continue to work with Marcy in her new role as a producer and creator, where I know together we'll continue to have even more success," said David Ellison, founder, and CEO of Skydance Media.
Ross sent an email, which we posted in full below, to her staff about the move.
Over the past six and a half years, together we have built Skydance Television into a creative haven for writers, actors and directors. I have worked alongside you, the most talented team of executives-some of whom were even with me on day one in our little bungalow on the Paramount lot. We have so much to be proud of-seven seasons of Grace and Frankie, Altered Carbon, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Foundation, Condor-and many exceptional projects in development that are poised for the next wave of pickups.
Anyone who knows me well knows that I am happiest when I'm in a room with talent - with ideas flying and creating worlds-or on a set, rolling up my sleeves and problem solving. Being in the moment, working closely with artists, is my happy place and that is what I want for my next chapter.
With that in mind, I am leaving my position as President of Skydance Television and transitioning to an overall producing deal with the company where I can give my full attention to a few special projects I am currently developing.
I want to thank David for the opportunity of a lifetime to launch a television division - it's been an incredible journey and I look forward to working side-by-side with this extraordinary team in my new capacity.
