20th Century Fox TV has promoted two key communications executives, announcing Tuesday new titles for Shari Rosenblum and Chris Kaspers.

The well-liked pair, who between them have run campaigns for such marquee studio hits as Modern Family and This Is Us, have been elevated to senior vp (Rosenblum) and vp (Kaspers) in the publicity department.

“Shari is a talented publicity executive who has run point on the campaigns of some of the studio’s most memorable shows, from Homeland to Modern Family,” said studio executive vp corporate communications and publicity Chris Alexander, to whom both report. “She’s valued by showrunners, talent and press alike, and I’m happy she’ll be taking on more, particularly in the awards space, as part of this increased role. Chris has become an integral member of the team, from running the studio’s San Diego Comic-Con effort to handling our high-profile series This Is Us. It’s no accident he won the Weinberg award for his work on that show; he’s a spectacular publicist who never lets you see him sweat.”

Rosenblum has been with the studio for 12 years, shepherding launches for Showtime flagship Homeland, Emmy titan Modern Family and both the Fox and Netflix iterations of Arrested Development. Kaspers came to the studio from Disney/ABC Television Group in 2012 and was instrumental in the 2016 roll-out of This Is Us, the ascendant NBC drama that currently ranks as the highest-rated series on broadcast.

Both have been recipients of the Maxwell Weinberg Publicist Showmanship Award.
