Dev Exec Brett Burlock Departs BCE-Era CTV

CTV's program development division continues to restructure under Corrie Coe, senior vp of indie production, and just ahead of the all-important Los Angeles Screenings.

TORONTO -- The executive carousel continues its merry-go-round at CTV, with vp of development Brett Burlock the latest to leave the Canadian broadcaster after its takeover by phone giant BCE.

The latest changes come as CTV, pursuing an increasing cross-platform strategy, is restructuring its programming development across genres, rather than channels.

Burlock’s CTV credits included Canada’s top homegrown dramas: Flashpoint, The Listener and Degrassi: The Next Generation.

His last day at CTV was May 6.

Burlock’s departure also comes ahead of the Los Angeles Screenings, where CTV and other private Canadian broadcasters will make crucial buys for new and returning U.S. network series to underpin their 2011-2012 primetime campaigns.
