Chuck Lorre Productions Names Producer Suzanne McCormack VP of Development

Producer Suzanne McCormack has been named vice president of development at Chuck Lorre Productions, Variety has learned.

McCormack — who is currently a coordinating producer on “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mom” and “Mike & Molly” — will oversee all development and production of both drama and comedy television projects for both network and cable. She will be responsible for generating potential series ideas, acquiring titles and formats, finding writers and directors to collaborate on CLP projects, while working with creative talent during the development and pitch process.

The new position marks the continued effort for the Warner Bros. Television Group-based Chuck Lorre Prods. to expand its programming slate.

“Suzanne has been a valued part of the team here for many years, and I’ve come to rely on her in a deeply codependent way,” Lorre commented.

With her new position, McCormack will remain her producer duties on all Chuck Lorre Prods. series, including “Big Bang,” Mom” and “Mike and Molly.”

McCormack also worked on the recently concluded “Two and A Half Men,” which she joined in 2010. Before working with Lorre, she worked at Warner Bros. TV and “The Early Show” at CBS.
