Warner Bros. Television has named Erin Gough Wehrenberg as its new senior vice president of comedy development.
Gough Wehrenberg will be responsible for WBTV’s primetime comedy development group. She will work with existing WBTV-based writers and producers, in addition to seeking out new talent and material.
Gough Wehrenberg will report to Len Goldstein, executive VP of creative affairs for WBTV, and will work alongside development vice presidents Lisa Lang and Wendy Steinhoff-Baldikoski.
"We loved working with Erin as a buyer and creative partner at the network, and we’ve seen first-hand her strong working relationships with talent and her great taste in material," said Goldstein. "She is a terrific executive and a perfect fit for our team."
Gough Wehrenberg joins WBTV from NBC Entertainment and sister production company Universal Media Studios, where she was most recently executive vice president of the production studio. She has also served as executive vice president of current series for NBC Entertainment, overseeing shows such as "30 Rock," "Friday Night Lights," "Heroes," "My Name Is Earl," "The Office" and "Medium."
