Salke has overseen development and programming at NBC since 2011. She “fostered some of the biggest script successes on NBC in years,” according to her company biography — including the hit drama series “This Is Us.”
She also brought the primetime sitcoms “Superstore” and “The Good Place” to the network.
“NBC has been an amazing home — creatively, professionally and personally — and I leave there knowing that the work we did had groundbreaking impact,” Salke said in the Amazon release announcing the news.
