A lawyer who became a top cable distribution executive, Heller spearheaded Turner parent Time Warner's TV Everywhere initiative.
"Andy's long industry career and deep understanding of the business of media and programming will serve Starz well. We look forward to his contributions as the newest member of our board of directors," Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement.
