Veteran producer Sabrina Wind has joined Will Packer Media as Head of Scripted Television and Production. Reporting to Alix Baudin, President of Will Packer Media, Wind will lead development and production for the company’s television projects, working closely with show creators, writers, and producers. She fills a position that has been vacant since Carolyn Newman left last fall.

“I truly believe the key to success in today’s content landscape is working with Executives who have a specific understanding of audience’s tastes and a keen ability to execute on them. Sabrina is that Exec, and her reputation as someone who delivers is unmatched,” said Will Packer Media founder Will Packer.
