Steve Tann has been named head of current programming for Touchstone Television. He will report to Julia Franz, executive VP of creative affairs.

Before Mr. Tann’s appointment, all Touchstone Television creative executives handled both development and current duties.

Prior to joining Touchstone, Mr. Tann was head of television at 3 Arts Entertainment. Before that he was senior VP of creative affairs and West Coast head of television at New Line Cinema.

Mr. Tann has also held positions at Columbia-TriStar Television and Spelling Television, overseeing current programs and development.
