Telepictures continues shuffling exex

Drachkovitch, Auerbach added to programming staff

Telepictures Prods. has made two major appointments to its programming staff.

Former Buena Vista Prods. exec Stephanie Drachkovitch has joined the company to oversee development as senior VP, and David Auerbach, who has been senior VP of development for the last year, is seguing to oversee new media and current programming.

The moves follow other recent exec shuffles at Telepictures, including a change to the staff of newsmag “Extra” and the addition of Lisa Gregorisch-Dempsey as senior exec producer of reality programming for the Time Warner division (Daily Variety, June 8).

Drachkovitch will assume responsibility for Telepictures’ West Coast development activities for network, firstrun and cable TV projects.

In addition to running the current programming activities of Telepictures’ firstrun series, Auerbach will collaborate with Warner Bros. Online on the Web activities of Telepictures’ current series. He will also develop original programming for interactive TV and the Web.

Drachkovtich most recently served as senior VP of programming for Buena Vista Prods., which merged development operations with that of ABC daytime in February.

At Buena Vista, Drachkovitch was involved with such series as “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” Showtime’s “Beggars & Choosers,” syndie series “Your Big Break” and new Comedy Central series “Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush.”

Prior to her work at Buena Vista, she also held programming posts at Pearson Television North America, Group W Prods. and indie production company 44 Blue Prods./Presidio Pictures.

Auerbach originally joined Telepictures as VP of development in 1991 to develop reality programs for networks. Most recently he oversaw the development of upcoming game show “Street Smarts.”
