NBC taps 2 series development veepees

Bromstad, Hancock to program drama, comedy for the Peacock

NBC has tapped Angela Bromstad to serve as vice president of drama development, while Larry Hancock has been named VP of comedy development for the Peacock.

Bromstad will report to recently named senior VP of drama development Chris Conti. Hancock’s boss is JoAnn Alfano, NBC’s newly anointed senior VP of comedy development.

“Angela and Larry are both very gifted programming executives with strong credentials based on the many contributions they have made since joining NBC,” said Karey Burke, exec VP of primetime series development for the Peacock web.

“We feel fortunate to have completed the staffing of our new development team with these appointments and look forward to having Angela and Larry play an important role in helping us find and nurture the next generation of quality NBC series.”

Bromstad moves to NBC Entertainment from NBC Studios, where he had been VP of primetime series. In that post, she supervised development of nine drama co-productions, including the Friday hit “Providence” and the upcoming Sunday night hour “Ed.”

Before moving into the series arena, Bromstad worked as a VP of movies and minis for NBC Studios (1997-99) and NBC Entertainment (1994-97).

Hancock is moving into development from his most recent yearlong gig as VP of current series for NBC Entertainment.

He had previously spent three years as director of primetime series for NBC Studios, working on shows such as “Will & Grace,” “Providence” and “Homicide: Life on the Street.”
