Longtime IDW Entertainment President David Ozer is leaving the company to become an independent producer, the company announced Friday.  Ozer has been the first and only head of the division since its founding in 2013 (see "IDW Launches TV Development Division").

Ozer’s departure comes less than a month after IDW’s board replaced founding CEO Ted Adams with TV executive Kerry McCluggage (see "TV Exec Replaces Adams as IDW CEO"). McCluggage gave Ozer a cordial send-off; "David has been with IDW Entertainment from the beginning and, along with his team, helped build IDW Entertainment into a thriving independent production company and we wish him well in his future endeavors," he said.

Ozer sold three seasons of Wynonna Earp and two of Dirk Gently, placed V-Wars at Netflix (see "Netflix Orders ‘V-Wars’"), and most recently, sold the long-gestating Locke & Key series to Netflix (see "’Locke & Key’ at Netflix").
