ABC cabler ups Bowman

Exec takes role of VP programming and development

HOLLYWOOD — ABC Family has upped Brooke Bowman to VP of programming and development.

Reporting to head of programming and development Kate Juergens, exec will continue to develop scripted and reality projects for the cabler. Bowman oversees upcoming reality series “Las Vegas Garden of Love,” about a family-run wedding chapel, and “Looks of Love,” centered on the day-to-day business at a Los Angeles hair salon.

Bowman also is overseeing ABC Family’s first original drama, “Beautiful People” (Daily Variety, Feb. 8), which stars Daphne Zuniga as a single mother of two teenage girls.

“Brooke is a dynamic creative executive who has been instrumental in developing our originals,” Juergens said.

Before joining ABC Family as an exec director of programming/development last year, Bowman was a development director at Buena Vista Prods., where she worked on firstrun syndie projects and reality series for broadcast and cable. She previously was a manager in the development department of VH1.
