Warner Bros. Television has created two exec VP positions to spearhead a production and operations management structure.
Brett Paul, who handles the studio’s business affairs, operations and finance, will add oversight of WBTV’s physical production activities to his plate. The company’s top exec on the business side, he will continue to report to WBTV president Peter Roth.
Sue Palladino is being promoted from a senior VP position in business affairs and will oversee day-to-day production operations related to primetime series, telepics and miniseries. She will report to Paul.
Paul joined WBTV in 1995, and has been a key negotiator for many of the studio’s licensing, production and talent deals.
Palladino, who recently replaced production exec Judith Zaylor, arrived on the lot in 1999, and has been actively involved on deals with WB-based producers such as Greer Shephard and Michael Robin (“Nip/Tuck,” “The Closer”).
