Television and film executive Zennen Clifton, who was most recently executive vice president of 3BD Networks at studio 3BlackDot, is joining Apple TV+ as a creative executive, according to Variety. He’ll work on the Los Angeles-based domestic development team, reporting to head of development and current programming Matt Cherniss.
At 3BD Networks, he led all direct-to-consumer content initiatives as well as 3BD’s full-service branded content studio. Prior to that, Clifton served as vice president of TV and digital at MACRO, a global media brand driven by and representative of the voices and perspectives of people of color.
Variety adds that the Princeton grad also co-founded full-service production company No Label in 2016 with NBA All-Star Baron Davis to develop both long- and short-form content for multicultural audiences; No Label has since developed projects for Sony, Lionsgate, Amazon, MACRO and Warner Horizon.
