This marks Jarmon’s return to Freeform where she previously served as an executive director in development. She replaces Lynn Barrie who in March left Freeform after a three-year stint as SVP Original Programming and Development.
Jarmon, who starts Aug. 23, will oversee the Freeform scripted series development team, identify new ideas and concepts for scripted series at the network, and supervise creative production on series pilots, as well as the first season of all new scripted series.
“Julie has a keen understanding of our audience. She has a proven track record for finding unique and captivating stories and understands the importance of authentically reflecting the spirit of the millennial and Gen Z generation,” said Jamila Hunter, EVP of Programming and Development, Freeform, to whom Jarmon will report.
