Sony Pictures TV has bumped up its comedy and drama lieutenants.

Studio also has the drama “Eva Adams” at Fox; the Lifetime drama “Drop Dead Diva”; and the Jada Pinkett Smith drama “Time Heals” at TNT. Sony is also behind the upcoming ABC hourlong “The Unusuals.”

Hall, who joined Sony in 2005, developed “Damages,” “Breaking Bad” and “The Beast,” while Adilman, who’s been with the studio since 2004, developed “‘Til Death,” “Rules of Engagement,” “My Boys” and “Ten Items or Less.”
