The casting department at Fox is getting a reorganization, after two high-level executives said Friday they plan to step down, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Marcia Shulman, who has been at Fox for 11 years, is leaving her post as executive vice president of casting and transitioning to an independent role with Fox, the story says.

Bob Huber, senior vice president, is retiring after 19 years with the company. Huber worked on casting for Fox shows such as "Raising Hope" and "Fringe," the story says.

Tess Sanchez has been promoted to senior vice president of casting and will succeed Shulman on June 1, the article says. She will report to Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly.

Sanchez will reportedly hire additional people for the department, and has added Seth Yanklewitz, who worked on "The Hangover," as vice president of casting.
