Nov. 21, 2019 - Today, CBS All Access announced the expansion of its Original Content team, led by Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President of Original Content. Danny Feldheim and Jana Steele Helman have both been upped to the roles of Senior Vice President of Original Content, and Ashley Whitaker joins the team as Director of Original Content, alongside Eric Pertilla, who joined CBS All Access in August 2018 as Director of Original Content.

Before joining CBS All Access, Feldheim worked in drama programming at Fox, and prior to that, he worked at entertainment companies Nickelodeon, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and ICM.

During her time there, Helman was a key contributor to the rebrand of the network from ABC Family and oversaw the development and production of such series as Marvel's "Cloak and Dagger" and "Grown-ish." Prior to joining Freeform in 2016, Helman was Director of Comedy Development at Warner Brothers Television, working on series including "Two Broke Girls," "Undateable," "Selfie," "One Big Happy" and the adaption of "Green Eggs and Ham." Before her time at WBTV, Jana started her career as an assistant in the TV and motion picture literary departments at Endeavor (now WME).

Eric Pertilla joined CBS All Access in August 2018 as Director, Original Content. Since joining the team, Pertilla has supported the development of CBS All Access series including THE GOOD FIGHT, WHY WOMEN KILL, THE TWILIGHT ZONE and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, among others.
