ABC will be looking for a new executive director of alternative series now that Brandon Riegg has chosen to take a similar post at NBC, reports TheWrap.

Riegg will be NBC’s vice president of alternative series & development, working under Meredith Ahr, senior vice president, alternative programing & development, and Paul Teledgy, executive vice president, alternative programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios.

While at ABC, Riegg oversaw "Dancing with the Stars," "Wife Swap" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."


  1. Well it’s his loss and he must be looing it is all i have to say if anyone chooses to go to a sinking ship so long and must not have been right for abc in the first place so long and sure your day’s will be numbered along with the NBC nobody cares network!!

  2. Or, perhaps he will surprise them with brilliant ideas and make NBC into the “Phoenix” network. The big questions is – who knows what makes a peacock irresistible???
    I wouldn’t judge someone before they have a chance to prove themselves. I say, stay tuned!
