Dominic Pagone Named Head of Communications for Paramount TV Studios

Dominic Pagone has been named Head of Communications for Paramount Television Studios. 

Pagone previously served as Senior VP of Entertainment PR and Awards for Showtime. He oversaw the Los Angeles- and Boston-based PR teams at Showtime, as well as the Showtime Awards team and the Paramount Television Studios PR team. 

He joined Showtime in April 2018 after spending 18 years at FX. He was hired in 2002 as a Publicist, working his way up to VP of Media Relations, leading or co-leading on shows like The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Rescue MeJustifiedIt’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaThe RichesMan Seeking Woman and Sons of Anarchy. He became Senior Vice President of Communications in 2015, running the department budget and overseeing trade communications, talent relations & events, public affairs and photo publicity for FX, FXX, FXM and FX Productions.

Pagone’s new role comes in the wake of last week’s announcement by Paramount Global that Showtime would no longer be a stand-alone brand. The company was going to rebrand premium cable network as “Paramount+ with Showtime.”

In his new position, Pagone will report to PTVS President Nicole Clemens and CBS’ Exec VP of Communications Chris Ender. Clemens sent the following email to PTVS employees:

“Hi, everyone. I’m reaching out today to formally announce our new head of communications, Dominic Pagone. This is not a surprise to many of you, especially since he was in the office last week!

Dom is certainly no stranger to our team. In his former role at Showtime communications, he was an important PR adviser and strategist across many PTVS business and show issues. Now we get him full time!

He’s also no stranger to me. Dom and I previously worked together at FX, where I witnessed firsthand his incredible skill in media relations, talent relations, show campaigns and awards strategies. He loves television and knows how to generate meaningful recognition for our premium shows. Dom is also the ultimate collaborator with executives, talent, producers and everyone in the creative process.

As Senior Vice President, Communications, PTVS, Dominic will report to me and Chris Ender, who oversees comms for all CBS brands and other parts of George Cheeks’ world. Dom and his team will be based here on the first floor of the Lubitsch building, and they will also be aligned and collaborate with Chris’ broader communications group too.

In addition to Dom’s announcement, I’m sure you also read the amazing news last week about Erin Calhoun, who has been named EVP Communications, Paramount Streaming and Cross-Company Publicity overseeing communications for Paramount+, Pluto and Paramount+ with SHOWTIME, and has a new cross-platform role in the broader company. I want to thank Erin for her incredible comms leadership at PTVS and her support to me and all our teams.

We now have the best of three worlds for comms. We get Dom every day; Erin when we sell a show to Paramount+; and we’re connected to Chris’ broader comms group, too.

Please join me in thanking Erin and welcoming Dom to his new PTVS leadership role.”
