CBC names new comedy production exec

Canadian TV writer-producer Sara Snow accepts title

TORONTO -- The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. has named veteran Canadian TV writer and producer Sara Snow as its new executive in charge of comedy production, replacing Carol Commisso as part of an ongoing management shakeup at the public broadcaster.

Snow, whose Canadian TV credits include "Degrassi: The Next Generation" and "RenegadePress.com," will report to Jenny Hacker, who earlier replaced Anton Leo as creative head of comedy at the CBC.

Snow joins the CBC after a string of homegrown comedy hits, including "Little Mosque on the Prairie," "18 to Life" and "The Rick Mercer Report."
