Roth’s track record at Warner Bros. includes some of its biggest small-screen hits, from “Gilmore Girls” to “The Big Bang Theory” to “The Flash” to “Westworld.” In early 2020 he was named chairman of the Warner Bros. Television Group, which this season received a series order for Chuck Lorre’s “B Positive” from CBS and a Season 3 renewal of “The Kominsky Method” from Netflix. Prior to his current post, the longtime TV exec oversaw programming from Warner Horizon Television, Warner Bros. Animation, Telepictures, Shed Media and Warner Bros. International Television, and was key in inking the 2019 mega-deal with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions. Roth will step down from his position in early 2021 and is also set to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
