CBS’ Alix Jaffe Moves to Greg Garcia’s Banner

Longtime network exec to run development for CBS TV Studios-based company

CBS vet Alix Jaffe has been tapped to head Greg Garcia’s Eye-based Amigos de Garcia Prods.

Jaffe , formerly veep of current programming for CBS, will oversee development and current programming for the shingle, which has a new comedy, “The Millers,” bowing on CBS in the fall. She’ll also serve as an exec producer on the family comedy starring Will Arnett, Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale.

Garcia, the comedy scribe behind such laffers as Fox’s “Raising Hope,” NBC’s “My Name is Earl” and CBS’ “Yes, Dear,” inked a hefty four-year development pact with CBS last year.

“As a current executive on the show ‘Yes Dear,’ I was always impressed with Alix’s contributions to the show, and over the years she has remained not only a good friend but someone whose opinion I have always sought out and valued,” said Garcia. “She’s incredibly smart and funny, and I consider myself very lucky to have her in this position.”

As a current exec, Jaffe’s responsibilities in recent years have included overseeing a range of comedies and dramas as well as “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” She shepherded creative aspects of “Under the Dome,” which opened big for the Eye on Monday night, “How I Met Your Mother,” “Rules of Engagement” and “Blue Bloods,” among others.

Jaffe signed on with the Eye as an assistant in 1994. She was most recently promoted to her VP post in June 2004.
