Bravo promotes Brewer in program strategy

Among roles, exec will oversee scheduling and acquisitions

With programming topper Andy Cohen’s role at Bravo have been reduced as he devote his time to “Watch What Happens Live,” the cabler has upped David Brewer to VP of program strategy and acquisitions.

Brewer, whose previous post at the network was director of strategic program planning, will work under Jerry Leo, who has taken over many of Cohen’s old responsibilities.

In the new role, Brewer will supervise scheduling, series rollout planning, movie and series acquisitions and lead programming support for the net’s sales and marketing.

Brewer has worked on several of Bravo’s high-profile offerings over the last few years — various iterations of the “Real Housewives” franchise, “Top Chef Masters” and “Millionaire Matchmaker.” Prior to his time at the cabler, he worked as an NBC page.

Cohen is devoting most of his time to “Watch What Happens Live,” which is set to expand to a five-a-week strip in January.
