MGM renews the contracts of its top MGM Television executives through 2016.

MGM which movie TV channel is seen in South Africa, as well as several of the studio's shows such as Teen Wolf and Vikings, has renewed the contracts of its top MGM Television TV executives through 2016.

The MGM movie channel (StarSat 140 / DStv 140) is seen in South Africa on both MultiChoice's DStv and On Digital Media's (ODM) StarSat.

MGM has renewed the contracts of Roma Khanna as president of the TV group and digital, Chris Ottinger who is the president of International Television distribution and acquisitions, and Steve Stark who is president of television production and development until 2016.

Roma Khanna continues to report directly to MGM chairperson and CEO Gary Barber, with Chris Ottinger and Steve Stark reporting to Roma Khanna.

"MGM Television, under Roma Khanna's direction, is stronger than ever, and is an important producer and distributor of content for television and digital platforms worldwide," says Gary Barber in a statement.

MGM Television's portfolio includes shows such as Vikings which will start on 13 March on M-Net Series Showcase after History (DStv 186) failed to bring it to South African viewers as it did in the United States, and Teen Wolf which has been seen on MTV as well as M-Net Series Showcase.

Rhoma Khanna joined MGM in 2011 from NBCUniversal.
