The two veteran execs of the studio are upped in drama development and publicity, respectively.

20th Century Fox Televison has elevated two executives. The studio announced Monday that Mark Ambrose and Shari Rosenblum have both been promoted to vp drama development and vp publicity, respectively.  

Ambrose, who has been with the studio since 2004 after moving over from Endeavor Talent Agency, will continue to report to senior vp drama development Michael Thorn.

"Mark is a dedicated and smart executive who has built terrific relationships with producers and talent alike in the nine years he has been with us," said Thorn. "He is incredibly deft at assessing the landscape and his creative instincts are second to none. I couldn’t be happier to announce his elevation to vp."

Most recently serving as director in the department, Ambrose shepherded midseason entries Crisis (NBC) and Gang Related (Fox). He oversees a large stable of producers, writers and directors, including Chernin Entertainment and Chris Morgan Productions.

Rosenblum, who received the Maxwell Weinberg Publicist Showmanship Award for her work on Homeland earlier this year, has been with the studio since 2000. In addition to Homeland, her current roster includes Modern Family, Arrested Development and New Girl. She's spearheaded studio publicity on behalf of dozens of drama, comedy and animated series.

"Shari is a spectacular publicist who has earned the respect and admiration of producers, actors and press alike," said senior vp corporate communications and publicity Chris Alexander -- to whom she will continue to report. "It is no accident that last year she literally competed against herself for the publicists guild award for her work on two different series. We are lucky to have her at 20th and she has more than earned this promotion."

Rosenblum also leads a team of executives from multiple divisions of 21st Century Fox on the studio's expanding annual presence at San Diego Comic-Con.
