D’Angelo, who assumed the newly created post April 1, will be involved in all phases of feature development and production, along with president of production Bob Weiss.

D’Angelo joined Universal’s story department in 1988. He became VP of production in 1994, supervising such movies as “Happy Gilmore,” “Reality Bites,” “Little Rascals” and “Fierce Creatures.”

The company currently is developing a feature version of the “Saturday Night Live” sketch “Roxbury Guys.”

Broadway Video was founded in 1979 by Michaels, the eight-time Emmy Award-winning “Saturday Night Live” producer. With 200 employees in New York and Los Angeles, the company’s activities include TV, feature and interactive production.
