Nevins re-ups VP post at Peacock

'ER,' 'Pretender' exec responsible for primetime p'gramming

David Nevins has re-upped his position with NBC Entertainment as senior VP, primetime series, where he will continue to head up one of two programming teams responsible for the network’s primetime series lineup.

“As the network executive on ‘ER,’ ‘Profiler,’ ‘The Pretender,’ ‘Suddenly Susan’ and others, (Nevins) has contributed enormously to the strength of our lineup and has delivered an exciting slate of series for the fall schedule,” said NBC Entertainment prexy Warren Littlefield, to whom Nevin reports, in a statement.

Named to his current post in July 1996, Nevins and his team are responsible for having developed series for the 1998-99 season that include the comedies “Will & Grace” and “Encore!” as well as the dramas “Trinity” and “Wind on Water.” Team Nevins was also responsible for developing the comedy series “Lateline,” which returns during the 1998-99 midseason, and oversees “Law & Order” and “Fraser.”

In addition to Nevin, other execs in NBC Entertainment’s primetime series department have signed contracts with the network. They include Shelley McCrory and Bob Levy, VPs, primetime series. In a unique deal, Levy will simultaneously serve as a programming exec while studying directing under Emmy-winner James Burrows.

In his previous role as VP, primetime series, since August 1994, Nevins was involved in the development of the dramas “ER” and “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Before that, he served as director of drama development after joining NBC Entertainment in September 1992.

Before his career at NBC, Nevins was VP, creative affairs, for Lewis Chesler Prods. He also worked in media relations for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in Washington, D.C.
