Casting vet Bob Huber will continue to populate the sitcoms at Fox, where he’s been named senior vice president.
Huber had previously been VP of casting since October 1997. Huber heads casting for all of Fox’s primetime comedies, including “Bernie Mac,” “That ’70s Show,” “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Wanda at Large,” as well as newcomers “A Minute With Stan Hooper,” “Luis” and “Arrested Development.”
Huber reports to casting exec VP Marcia Schulman, who made the announcement Wednesday.
“Bob is one of the most knowledgeable and highly regarded casting executives in the business,” Schulman said. “During his tenure at Fox, the network has had great success in the comedy arena, and this promotion is in recognition of his invaluable contributions.”
Huber joined Fox in 1992. Prior to that, he worked at ABC in that net’s New York casting office for five years.
