Fabrik Entertainment has promoted two assistants to boost their growing development team.

Paul Hilborn and Abbey Morris have both been upped to managers of development, as the L.A. based television development and production company looks to expand into new territories and further enhance their programming.

“Abbey and Paul are dedicated members of our team with a true knack for the development process,” said Fabrik’s CEO Henrik Bastin. “As executive assistants they made an indelible impression, so when the opportunities arose, internal promotions felt natural. We look forward to their continued support at a higher capacity as managers of development.”

In their new roles, Hilborn and Morris will continue to develop and grow Fabrik’s development slate, while also still managing current programming.

Founded by Mikkel Bondesen in 2005, Fabrik — which is behind “Bosch” at Amazon Studios, NBC’s “American Odyssey” and FX’s “The Comedians,” starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad — is looking to forge relationships with more networks, piggybacking off of their “trailblazing” efforts at Amazon, which resulted in the studio’s first-ever original drama series.

Aside from new network relationships, the company is setting out to continue to expand their slate, create and recruit more materials for their established relationships at a high capacity (Fabrik is owned by Red Arrow Entertainment Group and has a first look cable deal with Fox 21 Television Studios).

This pilot cycle, Fabrik produced the comedy “Love Is A Four Letter Word” for NBC, which is in contention for the 2015-16 TV season.

    Translation from Hollywoodese: Two well-connected people were promoted and you can count on them to keep the same people in and the same people out…

    Same old, same old in other words…
