Exec to continue working on 'ET' franchise

HOLLYWOOD — Terry Wood has been upped from VP to senior veep of programming for Paramount Domestic Television, making her the No. 2 programming exec at the division behind programming prexy Greg Meidel.

Wood will continue working on the evolution of the “Entertainment Tonight” franchise, which includes the development of syndie skeins “Entertainment Tonight,” “Entertainment Tonight Weekend” and the company’s new weekly half-hour movie review show, “Hot Ticket.”

She’ll also spearhead development and production of upcoming syndie talker “Dr. Phil.”
