Geller gets gig at CBS Par

Exec new senior veep at current programming dept.

Glen Geller is taking over the current programming department at CBS Paramount Network Television.

Exec jumps to the Eye studio from CBS Entertainment, where he had been VP of current since 2004. He’s been bumped to senior veepee at CBS Par, reporting to studio prexy David Stapf.

Geller replaces Tom Russo, who had been at the studio since 1994 and had been in charge of the current division since 2001.

Stapf cited Geller’s “integral role in shepherding ‘CSI’ to the top franchise in television” in a statement announcing the hiring. Geller and Stapf previously worked together during Stapf’s pre-CBS Par tenure as head of current for the Eye.

“Glenn’s creative instincts and leadership have earned him tremendous respect within the community,” Stapf added.

At Par, Geller will oversee the day-to-day management of the studio’s roster of existing shows.

Geller had been at CBS since 2001, working on the “CSI” skeins and several other shows, including “Judging Amy” and “Joan of Arcadia.” Before joining the Eye, he worked in drama programming at 20th Century Fox TV.
