Francie Calfo to head up Imagine TV

Producer named president, replacing David Nevins

Imagine Entertainment said Thursday that TV producer Francie Calfo has been named to replace the recently departed David Nevins at Imagine Television.

Calfo most recently was an ABC Studios-based producer. As president of Imagine TV, she will report to Imagine co-topper Brian Grazer and is expected to assume her new post within a week or two.

Imagine TV is based at Fox. Nevins left Imagine -- whose co-topper is filmmaker Ron Howard -- after being named entertainment president at Showtime last month.

"Ron and I are excited to be working with Francie, who has both executive and producing experience," Grazer said.
