CBS TV Distribution Taps Development Chief

Syndie and cable biz vet Elaine Bauer Brooks has joined CBS TV Distribution as exec VP of development.

Brooks will oversee program development for the Eye’s syndication unit under the direction of Hilary Estey McLaughlin.

Brooks comes to the Eye from NBCUniversal’s Style Network, which was shuttered last fall to make way for Esquire Network.

“Elaine has truly versatile experience from being a hands-on producer to having the perfect combination of unscripted, scripted and digital expertise,” McLoughlin said.

Brooks’ background includes working on talk shows fronted by Ricki Lake and Jenny Jones talker in the 1990s and for CBS/Eyemark Entertainment. She also served a hitch at Imagine Television, as senior VP of current and development, and at 20th Television overseeing “Judge Alex” and other shows.
