With over a decade of experience pioneering the intersection of TV and digital, Zach Feldberg has navigated the content business from many different angles. At CBC, he is in charge of the scripted Digital Originals strategy and programming slate, developing and commissioning series for the network’s streaming service, as well as its social media channels.

Prior to starting that role in late 2015, Zach spearheaded Shaw Media’s first digital programming mandate, including Global TV special The Second City Project, Food Network’s Super Snack Bros. and comedy series But I’m Chris Jericho!, which has now been picked up at CBC. He also produced digital products and content associated with the company’s priority linear series, including Big Brother Canada, Vikings, Kenny vs. Spenny, Trailer Park Boys and dozens more, yielding an International Emmy win in 2012, and a subsequent nomination in 2014.
