Dave Binegar Joins Jax Media As Head Of TV

EXCLUSIVE: Former Showtime development executive Dave Binegar has joined Jax Media in the newly created role of Head of TV. He will work in partnership with Jake Fuller, Jax’s Head of Production.

In his most recent role as VP of Scripted Programming at Showtime, Binegar worked with Jax on the company’s Jonah Kills U.K. comedy pilot, which is gearing up, as well as two seasons of the dramedy Work in Progress and the half-hour romantic comedy pilot Seasoned, starring real-life husband and wife Mandy Patinkin and Kathryn Grody, which was picked up to series but ultimately did not go forward amid the writers strike.

“As we continue to expand the Jax Media brand, we’re thrilled to welcome Dave Binegar to the team,” said Fuller. “Dave’s exceptional taste and incredible instincts as a storyteller across all genres align perfectly with our mission to produce top-tier premium content at competitive price points that inspires and resonates with viewers around the world.”

During his eight-year tenure at Showtime, Binegar played a key role in developing original scripted comedy, drama, and limited series, including Yellowjackets, Your Honor and Dexter: New Blood, Back to Life and upcoming Fellow Travelers and Woman in the Wall.

Binegar started his career in production management on stop-motion, motion capture and CG animated features for Disney and Pixar before pivoting to scripted TV.

The portfolio of Imagine-owned Jax Media, known for its comedy production model, also includes Emily in Paris, Younger, Russian Doll, Search Party, Broad City, and A Black Lady Sketch Show.

“From Broad City to Younger, I’ve long been a fan of Jax and the artists they’ve collaborated with,” Binegar said. “I am thrilled to be leading the creative side of this company and look forward to building on the impressive legacy of producing culturally resonant shows at all budget levels while also championing the boldest voices in episodic storytelling.”
