I’ve had an amazing run and some wonderful experiences but I realized I want to do more than one thing in this life and 30 years seems like a good round number to end with. I am forever grateful to Dana Walden and Shannon Ryan who were great mentors and friends; the incredibly talented producers and actors who have shared their gifts with me and the world; and most importantly, my incredible team, who I will miss dearly and hold dear forever. And, of course, thanks to the members of the press with whom it has been an honor to work for many years. As I begin this next chapter, I look forward to reading your breaking news without having the faintest idea what it will contain.”

In his current role, Alexander has directed advertising campaigns for several series, including This Is Us, Pose, the 9-1-1 and American Crime Story franchises, Only Murders in the Building, and The Dropout. . ‘, ‘Dope’ and ‘The Simpsons’.

Prior to the Disney-Fox merger, Alexander was senior vice president and executive vice president at 20th Century Fox Television for two decades. During that time, he helmed the promotion of Glee, launched Modern Family, and helped earn the series five consecutive Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Comedy Series.
