Eva Longoria and Cris Abrego’s Hyphenate Media Group has formed its executive leadership team with the appointment of three new roles, the company announced Thursday.

Jada Miranda has been appointed as the HMG’s president of television, while Karla Pita Loor was named as chief strategy officer and Alex Chang was named chief operating officer. All three new executives will report to Longoria and Abrego.

“Jada’s impressive track-record speaks for itself. With her vast network and studio experience across domestic and international co-productions and her deep talent relationships, she is the ideal leader to run Hyphenate originals,” Longoria said in a statement. “Cris and I are excited to count on her creativity and vision as we build our television business.”

Pita Loor and Chang will join HMG from Banijay Americas, where Pita Loor served as EVP of enterprise inclusion and social responsibility and Chang worked as SVP finance and strategy. Both Pita Loor and Chang worked with Abrego in their previous roles as he served as chairman of the Americas.

“I’ve worked closely with Karla and Alex over years at Banijay and have consistently counted on their partnership and professional acumen to bolster that business,” Abrego said. “Eva and I are thrilled to have them both join us on this venture and look forward to leaning on their dynamic leadership to deliver on the ambitious strategic and operational goals we have set across our studio business and all our holdings.”
