Warner Bros. TV Group President Leaving the Company THR

The president of Warner Bros. Television Group will leave the company after more than two decades at the studio, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bruce Rosenblum didn't survive a "two-year bake-off that pitted him against [studio chief Kevin] Tsujihara (and, to a lesser degree, film studio President Jeff Robinov) to succeed outgoing Warner Chairman Barry Meyer," the story says.

Peter Roth, the president of Warner Bros. Television, will be promoted and will report to Tsujihara, the piece reports.

The article adds: "Warners has a powerhouse television operation with hits including 'The Big Bang Theory,' and Rosenblum was known as an exceptionally tough deal-maker immersed in the studio’s business in advance of the upfronts even as it was clear that his days were numbered. Roth’s strength is not on the business side, so as THR suggested in March, Tsujihara will pair him with Jeff Schlesinger, who oversees international TV sales, and Rosenblum’s No. 2, Craig Hunegs."
