NBC’s executive structure continues to undergo the rapid evolution that has been in progress since the Comcast takeover, with another key network executive set to leave the fold, Deadline.com reports.
NBC’s head of comedy Jeff Ingold is expected to leave, with his replacement slated to be Sony TV comedy executive Tal Rabinowitz, according to the report.
Rabinowitz has overseen high-profile comedy projects at Sony such as "The Big C," one of the final series picked up by NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt when he was entertainment president at Showtime, the article notes. Rabinowitz has also overseen digital development and programming for Sony.
Ingold has worked as executive vice president of comedy at NBC since 2008, the story says. There’s speculation he might join Bill Lawrence’s production company at Warner Bros, as Ingold worked with Lawrence on the NBC show "Scrubs."
