WB’s Carlin ankles exec veepee post

19-year vet leaves for other ventures, no replacements named

Longtime Warner Bros. television figure Scott Carlin announced Tuesday that he was ankling his exec VP post of the studio’s two TV distribution arms, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution and Telepictures Distribution. Carlin, who has been with the company for 19 years, said he will resign to pursue other business ventures which will be announced at a later date.

“I never imagined I would work any place else,” said Carlin. “This has been my home. But, sometimes in life an opportunity and challenge present itself and the gravitational pull is just too much to resist. Such is the case here.”

Carlin has had his current post since 1995. During his nearly two decade-long tenure, he has also served as senior VP of sales, senior VP of first-run, and prexy of first-run syndication of Lorimar Pictures, which was bought by Warner Bros. in 1989.

‘World-class executive’

“I’m losing the daily contact of a great friend and world-class executive,” said Dick Robertson, prexy of WBDTD. “For 19 years, we have communicated with each other in shorthand and have, together, helped build WBDTD into a syndication powerhouse. Scott leaves an unprecedented legacy of respect and success in our business and our company.”

Among the projects Carlin helped build are the original “The People’s Court” and “Love Connection,” “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and “Extra.” He also headed the creation of the Telepictures distribution arm of Warner Bros.

No replacement has been named.
