NBC has installed a pair of directors for movies and miniseries, naming Debbie Teicher to direct miniseries and motion pictures for television at NBC Studios and Charles Freericks to the same post for NBC Entertainment.

Teicher is being upped from manager in the movies-minis division at NBC Entertainment. She will now work with department VP Gary Kessler on the development and production of longform projects for both NBC Studios and NBC TV.

Freericks, who served in the movies-minis director position being inherited by Teicher since February, will report to Lindy DeKoven, NBC Entertainment exec VP of movies-minis, to develop and produce longform projects for NBC.
