Studio shuffles exec deck

Top television studio Warner Bros. TV has made some changes in its development ranks, naming Wendy Steinhoff to VP on the comedy side and Lisa Roos to director in the drama department.

Steinhoff moves up from director of comedy development, a job she’s held since 2002, while Roos moves up from manager on the drama side, a post she’s held since June 2003.

Announcement was made Wednesday by Warner Bros. TV creative affairs exec VP Len Goldstein, who said Steinhoff possessed a “knack for discovering new talent,” while Roos brought “a great deal of insight and passion” to the studio.

As VP of comedy development, Steinhoff reports to comedy senior VP Marianne Cracchiolo. Roos will report to Susan Rovner, senior VP of drama development.

Steinhoff will be charged with facilitating Warner Bros. TV’s relationships with companies including Werner-Gold-Miller, Mohawk Prods. and scribes Jackie and Jeff Filgo. Roos worked on upcoming dramas including “Traveler” and “Waterfront” this past development season.

Steinhoff joined the studio in 2001 as manager of comedy development. Also since 2001, Roos has worked in Warner Bros. TV’s drama department.
