CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller is firming up his senior ranks.
The executive has promoted Bridget Wiley to exec vp current programs, and upped Amy Reisenbach to senior vp current programs, both reporting to Geller.
In her new role, Wiley will oversee creative affairs for all scripted series on broadcast for CBS and programming produced by CBS Television Studios for other networks and streaming services. She fills the void created by Geller, who was upped to entertainment president in September. Wiley, who will report to Geller, had served as senior vp in the department since 2013. She first joined CBS in 2005 as vp current programming. Before that, she was director of current programming at 20th Century Fox TV from 2002-05 and, prior to that, worked in the studio's drama department.
Additionally, Reisenbach — a member of THR's Next Gen 2014 class — will now serve as senior vp current programs. In her new role, she'll supervise all series produced by the studio for corporate sibling The CW, while working on shows broadcast on CBS. She will report to CBSTVS president David Stapf for CW fare and Wiley for CBS.
Reisenbach joined CBSTVS in 2005 as manager of current programs and was promoted to director a year later before being named vp in 2011. She previously worked in Warner Bros. Television's drama development and current departments.
“We’ve worked closely with Bridget and Amy for 10 years, and have watched them earn the respect and trust of creative talent and executives alike,” Geller and Stapf said in a joint statement announcing the news Thursday. “They are smart, skilled, creative executives who provide insight and value to every show they work on.”
