New Regency is adding to its executive ranks, hiring Laura Delahaye to oversee the company’s growing TV slate.
Delahaye will be head of domestic television at New Regency, reporting to chairman and CEO Yariv Milchan and president of motion pictures and TV Natalie Lehmann. She joins the company after working as director of overall deals, U.S. and Canada, at Netflix.

“New Regency is one the most exciting companies in television today, with both a rich legacy and strong momentum thanks to its recent successes and compelling slate of upcoming series,” Delahaye said in a statement. “I look forward to building upon the division’s strong recent growth and expanding a library that includes some of the best works of the last few decades.”
Said Milchan, “Adding Laura’s expertise to our team is an instrumental step as we continue to grow our footprint in the television space. Her keen eye for identifying great stories and cultivating relationships with talent will only fortify our growing slate of television, and Natalie and I are thrilled to have her on board.”
New Regency produces the Donald Glover- and Maya Erskine-led Mr. and Mrs. Smith for Amazon’s Prime Video (and was also behind the 2005 feature film of the same name). It’s also behind Man on Fire at Netflix, an adaptation of A.J. Quinnell’s novels that were previously made into a 2004 film starring Denzel Washington.
During her time at Netflix, Delahaye — a member of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen class of 2021 — helped develop and launch shows including The Queen’s Gambit and The Fall of the House of Usher and managed projects stemming from overall deals with Jason Bateman’s Aggregate banner and Brad Falchuk’s Teley-Vision. Prior to Netflix, she worked at Fox21.
