Viacom Promotes Nina Diaz to Programming President at MTV, VH1 and Logo

  • The Wrap
Viacom has promoted Nina L. Diaz to president of programming and development for MTV, VH1 and Logo Group, effective immediately. The announcement was made Thursday by Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, VH1 and Logo Group, to whom Diaz will continue to report.

“Under Nina’s creative leadership, both MTV and VH1 have experienced phenomenal growth while attracting the youngest, most coveted audience in entertainment,” said McCarthy. “Nina is an incredible leader and creative partner whom I have no doubt will continue to drive our brands to great heights and more success.”

Diaz previously held the post of executive vice president, programming and development, unscripted for MTV and VH1 since November 2016, when she added MTV to her role.

“I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to lead content creation at these powerhouse brands,” added Diaz. “Launching bold new programming that delights audiences and celebrates diversity is my passion and it’s a privilege to partner with a true maverick like Chris.”

During her tenure with VH1, Diaz oversaw 10 consecutive quarters of growth with shows including “Love and Hip Hop,” “Black Ink Crew,” “Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party,” “Hip Hop Squares” and “America’s Next Top Model.”

Since taking on MTV responsibilities, Diaz presided over three consecutive quarters of growth, thanks to new series including “Floribama Shore” and “Siesta Key,” both of which finished in the top five among the 18-34 demographic in 2017. Under Diaz, MTV also launched its “Jersey Shore” revival series, “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” which had the best debut for an unscripted series since 2012.

Diaz began her career at MTV, where she was responsible for some of the network’s biggest hits including “My Super Sweet 16,” “Cribs” and is also credited with conceiving the idea for “The Osbourne’s.”

American Idol Season Premiere Recap: The Best, Worst and Wiggiest Auditions From Night 1 on ABC — Grade It!

American Idol Season Premiere Recap: The Best, Worst and Wiggiest Auditions From Night 1 on ABC — Grade It!
Following a few words from Carrie Underwood — which, let’s be real, probably would have been spoken by Kelly Clarkson were it not for her commitment to The Voice — ABC on Sunday (finally!) returned American Idol to the airwaves.

Despite a new trio of judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, each of whom shined in this premiere without stealing too much focus from the contestants — ABC’s Idol feels a lot like the one we spent 15 years watching on Fox, complete with all the requisite cheese we’ve come to expect.

With the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards coming up on Sunday and the news about Total Request Live making a comeback in October, MTV has been on our minds quite a bit lately.

'Gotham Cribs' Makes Lego Batman the Real Estate Hero the City Deserves

'Gotham Cribs' Makes Lego Batman the Real Estate Hero the City Deserves
Here's some good news to help sooth wounds of those disappointed that Ben Affleck is no longer directing the Batman standalone movie.

MTV has released what Bruce Wayne/Batman's episode of MTV Cribs would look like (dubbed Gotham Cribs in this The Lego Batman Movie reality).

Will Arnett is particularly endearing as both The Dark Knight and Bruce Wayne. While Christian Bale's Wayne was himself a character — a larger-than-life booze hound who burns down his mansion — Arnett's Lego Bruce Wayne is just as arrogant as his masked counterpart. It's not an act, and that's a lot of fun to...

Lego Batman Movie Gotham Cribs Video Goes Inside Wayne Manor
Warner Bros. has released a new preview for The Lego Batman Movie, giving fans a sneak peek into Batman's home life at Wayne Manor, a house which he says is the biggest in Gotham City. This "episode" of "Gotham Cribs" features Lego Batman (Will Arnett) starting the tour, confirming rumors that he is in Bruce Wayne's roommate. He then 'introduces' the Gotham billionaire. Bruce thanks Batman for being such a "great host and iconic superhero." The video later shows Bruce and Batman switching places through an open fridge door that conceals the costume change, after Bruce Wayne picks up a Batarang in the kitchen.

Warner Bros. debuted this hilarious video on YouTube earlier today. The tour continues, showing fans Bruce's elaborate pool with live dolphins, and an extravagant bedroom, which Batman never needs because he's fighting crime in Gotham City. The tour concludes with Wayne's "secret room," a.k.

Mariah Carey Q&A: ‘I Don’t Know What People Think Of Me’
“I just wake up this way, natural — I swear,” jokes Mariah Carey as she was in hair-and-makeup prep for her upcoming E! series “Mariah’s World.” The Grammy-winner says she was ready to put out her own show because, “I’m not sure that people really know me at all.”

Here, Variety chats with Carey about “Mariah’s World,” “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “American Idol” and more…

Why was now the right time for you to have your own docuseries?

Really because I was getting ready to go on tour and there’s so much that goes into it, and I was like, let’s just document it and go behind the scenes. It’s going to be hilarious. I didn’t get talked into it — I just wanted to do it because I thought it would be a lot of fun.

'Mariah's World': Mariah Carey Recalls 'Great Moments' with James Packer as Bryan Tanaka’s ‘Crush’ Is Revealed
In Mariah's world -- her literal world, which also obviously serves as legendary fodder for the aptly titled eight-part E! docu-series Mariah's World -- if there's no Apple TV, there's no show. (It makes you wonder: How did the diva of all divas perform before digital media players?)

But in the grand scheme of Mariah Carey's outsized life, which we're privy to in this "don't call it a reality series" circus of a show that actually does feature her ex-fiance James Packer (and new admirer Bryan Tanaka), it's as vital as the oxygen she breathes and the fifth octave she hits. According to Molly, a past pet poop scooper-turned-new Mariah assistant, without it, "she can't sleep," which means, "she can’t perform. … If it’s not there, everything else falls apart."

"It's the most important thing for Ms. Mc," Molly reveals in earnest.

Nina L. Diaz Named Head of Unscripted at MTV, VH1
Nina L. Diaz will add responsibility for unscripted programs at MTV to her duties supervising the same at VH1, the latest of several recent moves by Chris McCarthy, the Viacom executive who was in October given oversight of the struggling youth-culture network.

“Nina has made a career of developing big, bold series that cut through and emerge as cultural touchstones, from ‘Martha & Snoop’ to ‘Cribs’ to the most successful seasons of ‘Love & Hip Hop,’” said McCarthy, in a prepared statement. “I couldn’t ask for a better partner, and I’m thrilled she’ll be taking on this expanded role and building on her incredible legacy at MTV and VH1.”
