Saturday Night Live Wiki

Jean Doumanian (b. July 28, 1936) is an American producer. She was the producer of Saturday Night Live for most of season 6; she was fired before the final episode of the season.

Saturday Night Live[]

Doumanian was an associate producer on the series from its inception. When founding producer Lorne Michaels left the show after season 5, it was Doumanian who was chosen to replace him. Her time on the show is considered by many to be its worst, though this was partly due to a low budget and an unwillingness by many viewers to accept an entirely new cast. She was fired from the show one episode shy of a full season.

After SNL[]

After her departure from SNL, Doumanian went on to produce several films and Broadway plays. She produced several films with Woody Allen until a falling out in 2000.
