BV ups Davine

Exec named sr. veep, biz and legal affairs

Buena Vista TV has upped Howard Davine to senior veep of business and legal affairs.

In the new position, Davine will oversee both the business affairs and legal departments for Walt Disney network television and Touchstone Television. Additionally, he will oversee the studio’s physical production department and will be involved in a variety of administrative matters.

Davine served as veep of network television, business affairs, and replaces senior veep Alan Duke. Disney insiders earlier this year said Duke would receive additional responsibilities, but instead, Duke now oversees business and legal affairs for “The Wonderful World of Disney” rather than the entire network TV production division.

Prior to joining Disney, Davine headed the entertainment transactional department of the law firm Christensen, White, Miller, Fink & Jacobs, which he joined in 1990, overseeing the legal work relating to the acquisition, financing, production and distribution of motion pictures and television programs.
