Prexy-chief will stay in Wolf pack

Jankowski to continue in post at shingle

Longtime Dick Wolf lieutenant Peter Jankowski has signed up to continue heading Wolf Films for two more years.

Jankowski serves as president and chief operating officer at Wolf Films, which he first joined in 1996. He also holds executive producer credits on all of Wolf’s primetime skeins, including “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

Wolf, who’s worked with Jankowski in various capacities for 20 years, said he was “thrilled” with the exec’s decision to remain running the company.

“His taste, intelligence and enthusiasm are part of the DNA of Wolf Films,” Wolf said.

Jankowski, meanwhile, said he’d continue to focus on maintaining “the brand’s high quality while exploring new avenues of programming.”

Wolf Films and NBC Universal TV, where the production company is set up, continue to mull the future of “Law & Order: Trial by Jury,” which didn’t make NBC’s fall lineup.

Wolf is also aggressively looking to expand company’s reach into comedy and longform programming, under development head Nena Rodrigue.

Prior to joining Wolf Films, Jankowski served as senior VP at Universal TV, overseeing series such as “Northern Exposure,” “Quantum Leap” and “Coach.”

Exec was also a producer on the 2002 World Trade Center film “Twin Towers,” which earned an Academy Award for best documentary short.
