Pair moved up to senior VP's of scripted programming

Upcoming scripted fare includes Brit import “The Inbetweeners,” which debuts Monday; “Underemployed,” from “Dirty Sexy Money” creator Craig Wright, which launches Oct. 16; and “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous,” which Bo Burnham.

Recent scripted series that failed to make it beyond one season were “Skins” and “I Just Want My Pants Back.”

Since arriving from Peter Berg’s Film 44 shingle, Levy has been at MTV since 2008. Spencer previously worked at the Greenblatt Janollari Studio.
