WBTV names duo in drama development

Plotkin, Hatch to report to Goldstein

Andrew Plotkin has been named director of drama development for Warner Bros. Television, while Abram Hatch is joining the department as manager.

Both executives will report to Leonard Goldstein, VP of drama development at WBTV. Plotkin will work with vet WBTV exec Susan Rovner, who helped develop the studio’s upcoming hours “The Fugitive” and “The Gilmore Girls.”

“The addition of Andrew and Abram is a significant step toward maintaining Warner Bros.’ leadership position in dramatic series television,” said Steve Pearlman, exec VP of development for WBTV. “Together with Len and Susan, this is an amazing team to balance the volume of product with a level of quality that is unmatched in television.”

Plotkin most recently spent a year as a scribe and development exec for the Web site the Romp. He had previously been vice president of creative affairs for Rysher Entertainment, working on skeins such as “Nash Bridges” and “Oz.”

Hatch previously was an assistant in the WBTV drama development department.
