The man of many titles over at Shari Redstone’s shop is about to lose one and get a one, if you get what I mean? Deadline has confirmed thatboss and CBS Chief Content Officer Nevins is in talks of taking on a major role overseeing content for +. The new gig would be streamlined to primarily focus on scripted content for the streamer, I hear.
“Out of his successes at Showtime, David has shown he has the skills required to evolve Paramount+’s originals to where (Bob) Bakish and others want it to be in the next couple of years,” a source close to the situation told Deadline.

Other genres and avenues of content at Paramount+ will fall under the prevue of a coterie of as yet to be revealed executives. The unveiling of the emerging Paramount+ bench will likely occur in the next couple of weeks with the likes of sports, unscripted and others receiving their own content czars, so to speak.
Long executive musical chairs made short: Nevins is not going to be put in charge of all content at Paramount+, but he will be losing the CCO medal he’s been wearingWhether or not Nevins retains his BET Networks oversight perch too is still in flux, I’m told. The decision may come down to exec himself and a unsentimental assessment of his total workload.
Variety were first to report the news of Nevins on the cusp of an expanded role at P+, as ViacomCBS execs like to internally call the streamer.
Mark Wahlberg & Antoine Fuqua Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Infinite’ Sets Paramount+ Release Date
UPDATED, 10 AM: We already knew that Infinite was bypassing a theatrical release for a debut on Paramount+ in June. It has been announced this morning that it will hit the Viacom CBS streaming service on June 10. PREVIOUSLY, May 6: Another Paramount theatrical release is leaving the calendar. The Antoine Fuqua-directed sci-fi thriller Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg, will hit the Paramount+ streaming service in June.
ViacomCBS did not respond to request for comment on the always ambitious Nevins’ potential new job, nor who else is in the running for content slots at the-led Paramount+
Out of the foundations planted by CBS All Access over the past seven years and a shift rebranding, Paramount+ was launched with great fanfare and a deep library on March 4 this year.

A keen corporate operator who has survived and flourish under several regimes since joining CBS in 2010, no one thought Nevins would stay on the streaming sidelines long after relinquishing tentacles on CBS All Access last year. Adding flame to the fire of ViacomCBS’s internal Game of Thrones, there was that memo that Ryan sent out
Accompanying word that longtime CBSerwas exiting as P+ EVP and Head of Programming, the May 27 correspondence from Ryan directly spoke of having “more to share in the coming weeks on our content structure.”
David Nevins is part of that structure coming into focus clearly for the ViacomCBS Streaming chief – one way or another.
