EXECUTIVE:

DC Entertainment has promoted Dan Evans to VP of creative affairs, a role that will entail the review of creative materials for all media — TV, film, animation and games — that are in production across Warner Bros. to ensure that the characters stay true to the core values of their franchises. Before joining DCE, Evans oversaw current programming at Marvel TV. He’ll report directly to DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.

Elsewhere, Endemol Shine Beyond USA has tapped former Maker Studios exec Todd Barrish as its new executive VP of creative partnerships.  In his new post, Barrish will guide all content licensing, commercial partnerships and branded entertainment initiatives.

In a series of executive hires, Propagate has named Ivan Garel-Jones the chief operating officer, while Isabel San Vargas has been appointed head of production and Linh Le has joined the business development team.  Hailing from ITV Studios, Garel-Jones will supervise all of the indie production company’s legal and business affairs.  San Vargas will oversee all aspects of production operations, including current series, specials, pilots and development, and Le will manage strategic planning, partnership initiatives and new business ventures.

Fox has appointed Monique Chenault as the exec producer of its longrunning courtroom reality show “Divorce Court.”  A TV vet of nearly two decades, Chenault previously served as the exec producer and showrunner on CBS’ “The Insider.”  Earlier in her career, she worked on BET’s “BET Takes Hollywood” and headed “Access H0llywood’s” programming department.

SPORTS:

May 15 marks 75 years since baseball star Joe DiMaggio started his record-breaking 56-game hitting streak.

To commemorate the anniversary, MLB Network‘s docuseries “MLB Network Presents” is airing “56: The Streak,” a special that will look back on the 1941 baseball season when DiMaggio broke the record.  “Saving Private Ryan” actor Edward Burns will narrate the program.
