/// Can a Career TV Exec Bring Ambitious Xbox Shows to Life?
Specs Name Jordan Levin New gig Evp, Microsoft Old gig CEO, Generate Age 45 How did you land at Microsoft? The simplest way of making the connection is that [Microsoft entertainment and digital media president] Nancy [Tellem] was at Warner Bros. on the studio side and she and I got to know each other while working together within the same corporate group. I got fired from the WB in the summer of 2004, then I directed, and then I put together Generate. And at the very beginning of 2012, we sold Generate to Alloy , and then Alloy Digital, and I became president of Alloy Digital. I had some projects I’d been discussing with [Microsoft] as a producer, and [Nancy] said she needed help. What was interesting about working on Xbox ?
