NBC's Tracey Pakosta Joins Netflix as Head of Comedy

Pakosta reunites with her former Universal TV boss Bela Bejaria

Netflix has found its head of comedy development in former NBC scripted executive Tracey Pakosta.

The move reunites Pakosta with Bela Bajaria, her former Universal TV boss. When Bajaria set her global leadership team last month, a head of comedy was a notable omission.

Said Pakosta: “I’ve spent many hours watching as a fan, and now I am incredibly excited to join Bela and the Netflix original series team. Comedy is my favorite playground, and I can’t wait to partner with all of the like-minded creators to make people laugh – we really need it!”

“Tracey is a seasoned and talented creative executive with a true passion for comedy, a sharp wit and a great sensibility for what makes audiences laugh. She and I have known each other for many years and I’m thrilled to have her join our original series team at Netflix as Head of Comedy.”
