Rozenfeld slips Col for ABC director slot

Kim Rozenfeld is ankling Columbia TriStar TV to take the No. 2 comedy development job at ABC, sources said.

Rozenfeld, 32, has worked at Columbia TriStar TV for the past two years, initially as a director of series development and later as a director of comedy series. He’ll now be executive director of comedy development at ABC under Carolyn Ginsburg, VP of comedy series programming.

While at Columbia, Rozenfeld helped develop ABC’s new sitcom “Over the Top,” CBS’ “The Gregory Hines Show,” UPN’s midseason show “Ruby,” CBS’ “Early Edition” and the short-lived CBS comedy “Life & Stuff.”

Rozenfeld was sought by several networks, in part because he has an eight-year production background before becoming an executive. He was an associate producer on two Warner Bros. made-fors: “A Walton Wedding” and “Without Warning.” He was a producer on the ABC series “Dinosaurs.” He also worked as a line producer with show-runners such as Chuck Lorre and Gary Marshall.
