Reveille ups execs, extends NBC deal

In addition, Reveille has expanded its first-look deal with NBC Universal, where Silverman decamped to last month as co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. Reveille created current NBC series including "The Office" and "The Biggest Loser."
The day-to-day operations of the company will be jointly led by Howard Owens, managing director, co-head of domestic television and head of digital; Mark Koops, managing director, co-head of domestic television; Chris Grant, managing director, head of worldwide distribution and president, Reveille International; and Lee Rierson, managing director, head of worldwide business and operations.
"Expanding upon the legacy that Ben Silverman created is a great opportunity for all of us," Owens said. "Together my partners and I have helped build an independent studio and production company that is unique in the industry."
"We are thrilled with the first-look deal with the new management team at Reveille," said Graboff, co-chairman of NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios. "Reveille has been and continues to be a key source of outstanding content for NBC and all of our media properties and platforms."
Reveille named Todd Cohen vp domestic scripted television. The company is expected to announce new development projects in the coming weeks.
