UPDATED: Showtime SVP original programming Danielle Gelber will leave the pay cable network at the end of the month when her contract is up. While the timing of her exit would probably fuel ongoing speculation that Gelber, who had worked under Robert Greenblatt at Fox and Showtime, might follow him to NBC, sources indicate that she would not be going there. At Showtime, where she has been since 2002, Gelber has shepherded The L Word, Weeds and The Big C. Here is Gelber’s statement released by Showtime:
I’ve had a remarkably fantastic time during my years at Showtime. I am deeply proud to have been so intricately involved in bringing many of the network’s signature series to our air, to say nothing of the amazingly rich roster of talented people from the creative community I’ve been privileged to work with. It’s been a life and career-shaping experience for me thanks to my many valued colleagues at the network, and I’m excited and looking very forward to where this great experience will take me next.
