Julie McNamara

EVP, Original Programming, CBS All Access
Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President of Original Content at CBS All Access, is the epitome of a “Wonder Woman in Streaming” as she continues to enhance the burgeoning streaming business while being a strong role model for women in the industry. In her position at CBS All Access, CBS’ direct-to-consumer digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, Julie oversees all current and future original series for the streaming service, including the critically acclaimed series THE GOOD FIGHT, STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and the reimagining of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, which drove the most unique viewers on a premiere day for

a CBS All Access original series to date. Under her leadership, Julie has expanded CBS All Access' originals slate from three series in 2017, to seven currently in market, and over 10 planned by 2020. She has been instrumental in building the service, shepherding its first original series and applying her immense talent and expertise to bring top creative talent to the service - from Alex Kurtzman's STAR TREK: DISCOVERY to Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg's THE TWILIGHT ZONE, to Kevin Williamson's TELL ME A STORY and Michelle and Robert King's THE GOOD FIGHT, amongst others. Julie's dedication to growing CBS All Access' lineup of premium original series has resulted in an expansion of one of the service's biggest subscription drivers, Star Trek. In addition to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, she has brought CBS All Access the upcoming Jean-Luc Picard series, STAR TREK: PICARD, starring Sir Patrick Stewart who will reprise his iconic role as Captain of the USS Enterprise; and STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, an animated comedy about the support crew on a low-level Starfleet ship, from "Rick & Morty" Emmy winner Mike McMahan. The latter also marks the first animated series for CBS All Access. Julie has also shepherded the comedy NO ACTIVITY, executive produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Funny Or Die, which was recently renewed for a third season; drama series STRANGE ANGEL from Executive Producers Mark Heyman, David DiGilio and Ridley Scott, which will launch its second season on June 13; and the dark psychological thriller TELL ME A STORY from visionary writer and executive producer Kevin Williamson ("Scream," "The Vampire Diaries," "Dawson's Creek"), which was renewed for a second season. In addition to the aforementioned STAR TREK: PICARD and STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS, future originals debuting on the platform include the true-crime series INTERROGATION and the darkly comedic drama WHY WOMEN KILL, from Marc Cherry (“Desperate Housewives”), who Julie worked closely with in her previous role as Vice President of Drama Development at ABC. Julie's incredible track record spans beyond her work at CBS All Access. While at ABC, she developed Cherry's smash hit "Desperate Housewives," as well as critical and fan favorites "Grey's Anatomy" and "Alias." Before her current role at CBS All Access, Julie spent a decade at CBS Television Studios, most recently as Executive Vice President of Drama Development. She oversaw development for all primetime drama series for broadcast television, including "The Good Wife," "Elementary," "Scorpion," "Jane the Virgin," "Hawaii Five-0," "Blue Bloods," "Madam Secretary," "Under the Dome" and "NCIS: Los Angeles," among others. Julie’s creative influence reaches beyond CBS All Access as she is also a strong leader and role model to female employees across several departments at CBS. As part of CBS’ “Eye Speak,” a corporate initiative designed to advance the careers of female CBS employees and open doors for talent across the industry, Julie was hand-picked for an informative and inspiration “fireside chat” to share her insights on not only the streaming industry and her role, but what her journey was to get here. In addition to her work at CBS All Access, Julie is a frequent participant in fundraisers for City of Hope, a private, not-for-profit clinical research center, hospital and graduate medical school dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people with cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses. CBS All Access is honored and lucky to have Julie as a strong creative mind and positive voice helming our Original Content team where she is currently, and always, our “Wonder Woman” in streaming. We would be honored for you to see her as one as well. Thank you for your time!
