Duo to be VP, current series

HOLLYWOOD — NBC has elevated series program directors Erin Gough and Jeff Ingold to veepee of current series programs.

The promotions were announced Wednesday by Peacock prexy Jeff Zucker and Ted Frank, senior veepee of current series. Both executives will report to Frank.

Gough, who joined NBC as an intern in the series programs department in 1994, began a stint a year later as an executive assistant in that department. In 1998, she became a program associate, then a manager. Most recently, as director, Gough was responsible for the ongoing creative supervision of “Friends,” “Ed” and “Three Sisters,” among others.

With her new gig, she will continue to oversee the latter three shows, also tackling such new titles as the midseason series “Leap of Faith,” “The Hank Azaria Show,” “Tikiville” and the Julia-Louis Dreyfus pilot.

Ingold arrived at the Peacock net in 1994 as an administrator in the program research department. He did a brief stint at Greenblatt-Janollari, as assistant to David Janollari and then as manager of creative affairs. In 1999, Ingold returned to NBC as a manager, current series, and was named director last August.

His current series assignments include the returning laffers “Just Shoot Me” and “Will & Grace,” as well as the new fall drama “UC: Undercover” and the frosh fall comedies “Inside Schwartz” and “Scrubs.”
