Rachel Eggebeen has been named vice president of development and production at cable TV shingle Fox 21.

As v.p., Eggebeen will work with scribes on Fox 21’s roster to develop new comedy and drama projects for cable, and identify new talent to join the studio.

“Rachel is someone we specifically targeted as being one of the best development people in town, and we aggressively pursued her,” said Bert Salke, prez of Fox 21. “She has incredible taste in both writers and material and has phenomenal relationships…Bringing Rachel on board at this moment in the company’s expansion is absolutely key as we ramp up both our current series production and development in all areas.”

Shows produced by Fox 21 include FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” and Showtime’s “Homeland.”
