Executive shuffles are under way among several of Disney’s TV businesses.
* At ABC, Chairman Lloyd Braun is expected to exit.
ABC Cable Networks Group President Anne Sweeney is expected to add oversight of the network to her purview. Mark Shapiro, executive VP of programming, ESPN, is eyeing a move to the ABC network, according to published reports. Thom Sherman, who in February left his job as senior VP of drama series at ABC to work with J.J. Abrams, has not yet been replaced.
* At ABC Family, the search continues for a new president to replace Angela Shapiro, who left the cable network in October. The new president will be expected to name a new head of programming to replace Linda Mancuso, who died in December.
* A search also is on at Buena Vista Productions-the Disney division that develops and produces TV projects for daytime, cable and syndication-to replace Holly Jacobs, who left her post as executive VP earlier this year.
