Flanagan ankles C-W post

Two high positions now open

Longtime Carsey-Werner exec VP Frank Flanagan has ankled his position at the indie TV distribber, leaving open the second high-profile slot in a month, just weeks before the new fall season hits the airwaves.

Flanagan had been with the company since 1995 and will now relocate to Florida to focus on his own company, ViaTel Enterprises, “in order to fill a void working with independent producers left open with all the vertical integration amongst the studios.” Flanagan started and ran ViaTel before joining C-W. Prior to that, he had a 10-year run cultivating projects at Viacom.

“Frank has done a great job in helping us establish Carsey-Werner Distribution,” said Stuart Glickman, C-W vice chairman and CEO. “He will be missed and we wish him all the best in his new endeavor.”

Earlier this month, syndie vet Joseph Zaleski, who served as prexy of C-W Domestic Distribution for four years, died. Zaleski and Flanagan shifted to C-W after working together at Viacom.

Sources say an announcement on replacements for two of the top positions within the company are pending, but no timetable has been set.

Carsey-Werner has three shows on the air: “Cosby” on CBS, “3rd Rock from the Sun” on NBC and “That ’70s Show” on Fox. It also has the animated series “God, the Devil and Bob” lined up on NBC for midseason.
