With ABC seeking to restore the current departments on its network and studio sides, Lynn Barrie and Stephanie Leifer are in talks to lead the teams on the ABC and ABC Studios arms, respectively, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com

Barrie most recently worked as vice president comedy series at ABC and Leifer has been vice president drama series at ABC Studios, the article says. The plan comes as ABC is preparing to debut nine new scripted series next season that will require attention in their first year, leading ABC Entertainment Group president Stephen McPherson to indicate he wished to revert to separate development and current departments, the story says.

ABC had merged current into the drama and comedy development departments last year as part of a restructuring, the article adds.
