TBS Expands Scripted Department with Thom Hinkle

Carousel TV, North South alum joins cabler as VP overseeing comedy

TBS is expanding its scripted development operation with the appointment of Thom Hinkle as VP of development.

Hinkle joins the Turner cabler from Steve Carell’s Carousel Television banner where he was copresident.

Before that he worked for indie production outfit North South Prods. He also worked as a producer fielding pilots for TBS and TLC among others.

He will report to Brett Weitz, senior vice president of scripted development for TBS and TNT.

“We found ourselves doing a lot of business with Thom while he was at Carousel, and we loved his taste and the style with which he handles talent,” said Weitz. “It became very clear to us that we would be lucky to have him on our team, leading TBS’s scripted comedy department.”

Hinkle began his career at “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” where he was hired as a researcher before being promoted to associate producer and field producer.
