ATLANTA, Aug. 21, 2012 -- In a major personnel addition, Bounce TV (www.bouncetv.com), the fastest growing African American network in television, has named veteran television programmer Billy Hall to the newly-created position of Executive Vice President, Programming & Production. In this role, Hall will oversee all scheduling, program planning, acquisitions, operations and original production for the network. Hall reports to Jonathan Katz, Bounce TV's Chief Operating Officer.

"Billy is a tremendous creative talent with a proven and successful track record as one of the top programmers in our business. Bounce TV's meteoric growth is driven by the team of smart and seasoned industry veterans we've been fortunate to assemble, so we are thrilled to have someone of Billy's experience and caliber join our extraordinary group of executives," commented Katz in making the announcement.

Hall comes to Bounce TV from Turner Entertainment Networks, Inc. where he initially served as Vice President of Programming for TNT and then added scheduling oversight of TBS, becoming Vice President of Programming and Digital Scheduling for both networks. He oversaw TNT and TBS Original scheduling and the TV Everywhere strategy for the TNT & TBS digital platforms. Hall developed the scheduling strategies of the hit shows The Closer, Conan, Rizzoli & Isles for TNT as well as for the successful Tyler Perry shows House of Payne, Meet the Browns and For Better or Worse on TBS. He was also instrumental in the creation and development of the Black Movie Awards on TNT.

Prior to joining Turner, Hall was Vice President of Programming and Production for Fox Movie Channel, where he also served as Director of Programming for FX. He helped launch FXM: Movies from Fox as well as the re-brand of the network as Fox Movie Channel. While with Fox Movie Channel, Hall developed and executive-produced the 2000 Aurora Best of Show Platinum Award-winning Building the Perfect Beast, as well as Altman On His Own Terms, Making the Connection, Hollywood Remembers Walter Matthau, Hour of Stars, Fox Movie Channel News and Cult Culture: The Poseidon Adventure. Hall also executive-produced the cast and crew reunion for Young Frankenstein at the American Cinematheque in Hollywood, the M*A*S*H cast and crew reunion at the Los Angeles County Museum and the 20th Century Fox Hour at the Museum of Television and Radio in Beverly Hills and New York.

Prior to joining the Fox Cable Group, Hall coordinated programming for the Health and Sciences Network. He has also had successful stints at Lifetime Television, Walt Disney Studios, Disney Channel and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Hall holds a Bachelor's Degree (Cum Laude) in Communications, Cinema and Photography from Ithaca College in Ithaca, N.Y. He is a member of NAMIC and in 2005 was accepted into the NAMIC Executive Leadership Development Program through the John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA.
