Olmstead most recently served as Co-President, Ucp and Wilshire Studios alongside George Cheeks who a couple of weeks ago was named Co-Chairman of NBC Entertainment alongside Paul Telegdy.
The promotion is a recognition of Olmstead’s role in growing Ucp over the past four and a half years into a leading supplier to the NBCU cable networks as well a streaming platforms.
