Corrao ankles Fox B’casting

Veep's departure had been rumored for months

Fox Broadcasting Co.’s comedy vice president Lauren Corrao has left the company, the network confirmed Wednesday.

Corrao’s departure had been rumored for months, and sources say she is mulling a couple of offers elsewhere. Fox has no replacement yet.

Corrao first joined Fox as a VP of alternative and latenight programming in 1994 from MTV, where she had served as a veepee of series development.

As head of alternative and latenight, she oversaw the development of Fox’s animated hit “King of the Hill” and the Saturday-night sketch-comedy series “Mad TV.” She moved to the comedy post one year ago, where she helped develop such series as “Getting Personal” and “Damon,” as well as upcoming comedies “Costello,” “Feeling All Right” and “Living in Captivity.”

At MTV, Corrao helped develop “The Jon Stewart Show,” “MTV Sports” and “The Ben Stiller Show,” which she also executive produced. She was also an executive producer of “The Real World” and “Remote Control.”
