Dramatic break for Fox’s Gold

Executive developed 'Prison'

Ted Gold is ankling his post as drama development topper at Fox.

Gold has headed Fox’s drama development team since 2004, when he joined as senior VP of the department. During his tenure the exec developed “Bones” and “Prison Break,” among other shows.

Net has had a tougher time of late with its hourlongs, with none of last year’s entries returning. But the net is bullish on its new crop of dramas developed under Gold, including the post-Hurricane Katrina police drama “K-Ville” and “Terminator”-themed entry “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”

Other dramas set for launch next season and developed under Gold’s watch include “New Amsterdam” and “Canterbury’s Law.”

“Ted has been a great team player here, and we’re sorry to see him go,” said Fox Entertainment exec VP Craig Erwich. Gold’s contract was up for renewal, and the exec was negotiating a new deal but ultimately decided to leave the net instead. Heresigned Tuesday.

Fox hasn’t named a replacement for Gold.

Gold joined Fox in 2004 from Spelling Television, where he headed the shingle’s drama department. Before that, he worked at Alliance Atlantis, New World and CBS. He began his career in 1991 at Stephen J. Cannell Prods.
