CBS Consolidates Current Department Under Glenn Geller

Eye vet David Brownfield segues to studio development pact

CBS has upped Glenn Geller to exec vice prez of current programming, consolidating the current departments of CBS Entertainment and production arm CBS TV Studios.

David Brownfield, who led CBS Entertainment’s current programming for almost a decade, will fulfill his plans to transition back to the creative realm, segueing into a development deal with the in-house studio. Before his tenure at CBS, Brownfield was a co-producer and scribe on ABC’s “Boy Meets World.”

“The timing is right to make this move,” CBS Entertainment head Nina Tassler and CBS TV Studios prez David Stapf said in a statement jointly announcing the move. “David has wanted to return to writing and producing television, and the majority of our series are now produced in-house. It makes sense creatively and operationally to have one streamlined current operation to support our shows.”

The Eye emphasized to Variety that it currently has no plans to consolidate other departments between CBS Entertainment and the studio.

In his new post, Geller will lead creative affairs for all scripted skeins broadcast on the Eye, and for all shows produced by CBS TV Studios both for CBS and other broadcast and cable nets. Before his promotion, Geller had been overseeing current at CBS TV Studios since 2006, and has been at the Eye since 2001.
