In her position at Comedy Central, Posch oversees the hit series “Inside Amy Schumer,” the network’s highest-rated premiere this year, drawing over three million total viewers for the first episode and currently in production on its second season. Posch is also charged with developing digital series for the network with New York-based talent.
