Former WWE senior writer Jennifer Pepperman joins AEW as VP of Content Development

A prominent television producer has joined AEW’s ranks.

Former WWE creative team member and experienced soap opera producer Jennifer Pepperman has been appointed as Vice President of content development role in AEW, per an announcement made Wednesday evening.

AEW’s statement says that Pepperman will work alongside Head of Creative Tony Khan to develop the on-screen product of the promotion.

“Adding Jennifer Pepperman’s brilliant mind to the AEW team opens the door for exciting new ideas and will help us build upon the incredible stories currently developing on the road to AEW Revolution across our three weekly shows on TBS and TNT,”  Khan said in a statement issued this week.

Pepperman was a long-time member of the WWE creative team, initially joining the promotion in 2017. Her move to AEW comes just days after a report surfaced that confirmed her departure from WWE this month.

WWE producer Adam Pearce thanked Pepperman for her time in the company via social media last week: “I have always appreciated your creativity, passion, and the countless time you’ve given to help me and others backstage over the years,” he said. “I’ll miss your energy, but I know you’ll be great wherever you may roam.”

Prior to her time as a WWE writer, Pepperman had a career in directing and producing soap operas. She has won three Daytime Emmy Awards for Best Directing since 2007, including her work on shows One Life to Live and As the World Turns.
