CBS taps Louis Boyd

Exec named VP alternative programming

CBS Entertainment has tapped Louis Boyd to serve as VP of alternative programming.

Boyd, who is nominated for a Daytime Emmy award, comes to the Eye with plenty of production experience. He’ll report to CBS alternative exec VP Jennifer Bresnan, who announced the promotion Wednesday.

At CBS, Boyd will develop reality, gamers and other non-scripted fare, while also helping to oversee Eye series such as “Survivor,” “The Amazing Race” and “Undercover Boss.”

His credits include the CW’s “Pussycat Dolls” series and the netlet’s “Stylista.” He also interacted there with Bresnan, who headed up the CW’s alternative fare before moving to CBS.

“As a producer who I’ve worked with, I know firsthand that Louis brings a wealth of valuable experience to the table,” Bresnan said.

Boyd fills the void left by Chris Carlson, who left the CBS executive ranks to join “Undercover Boss” as an exec producer.

Boyd most recently produced Style Network’s “How Do I Look,” which earned him a Daytime Emmy nod this year for outstanding lifestyle program. He also worked on Food Network’s “Chefs vs. City,” as well as Fox’s “The Swan” and ABC’s “The Ultimate Love Test.” Boyd began his career on “Celebrity Mole.”
