Fox Executive Shuffle: Terence Carter Moves to 20th TV, Charlie Andrews Returns to Network as Drama Chief

Fox has promoted longtime network drama chief Terence Carter to head comedy and drama development at 20th Century Fox TV. Charlie Andrews has returned to Fox after a brief stint at Netflix to fill Carter’s shoes on the network side.

Carter moves into the exec VP development job vacated by Michael Thorn in August when he was promoted to president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting. He will report to Jonnie Davis, 20th’s president of creative affairs.

“Terence is a spectacular creative executive who has been responsible for some of the network’s biggest and boldest hits,”said Davis. “When Michael was tapped for the network presidency, there was only one executive I thought of who could possibly fill his shoes. Terence is a smart and strategic programmer who already has a shorthand with our creative teams.”

Andrews will report to Thorn in his role as exec VP of drama programming, development and event series.

“Charlie is an extremely well-respected executive with impeccable taste and longstanding relationships throughout the creative community,” said Thorn. “We’ve been friends and colleagues for almost a decade and I can’t wait for him to return to the Fox family and re-join the incredible team we have in place.”

Carter has been with Fox since 2009 and was most recently promoted to head drama in 2014. Andrews had worked with Carter as senior VP of drama development and programming since 2011 before leaving earlier this year for a job as director of original series at Netflix. With Carter’s shift to the studio, Andrews was a natural candidate to take the reins at the network.
