In his new post, Conte will be responsible for overseeing physical production of Carsey-Werner’s current slate of sitcoms, which include NBC’s “3rd Rock From the Sun” and “Men Behaving Badly,” CBS’ “Cosby” and “Cybill,” and ABC’s “Grace Under Fire.”

Conte, who previously served as senior VP of production, reports to Stuart Glickman, Carsey-Werner’s vice chairman and CEO.
