NBC today named two co-presidents of Scripted Programming for NBC Entertainment. The company announced the promotions of Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta to the posts.
“The seasoned execs, who together have helped cement NBC’s status as the No. 1 network in their respective roles as Executive Vice Presidents of Drama and Comedy, will report directly to NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt,” the network noted.
Said Greenblatt: “Lisa and Tracey have impeccable taste, strong leadership and a deep understanding of the NBC brand. It was Lisa who was one of the first to discover and cultivate what is now the phenomenon of ‘This Is Us,’ and she continues to bring that astute eye to all the she does for NBC; and Tracey has shepherded in a new era of smart comedies, reigniting audiences to once again tune in on Thursday nights. Their relationships with top showrunners and talent are second to none, and I have no doubt their combined experience and expertise will build on the incredible momentum the network has right now.”
