Kevin Reilly will continue in the job he’s had since 2004.
Kevin Reilly has signed a new, multi-year deal to continue as president of NBC Entertainment. With the agreement, Reilly will continue in the position he’s held for nearly three years, developing such programs as Heroes, The Office, Deal or No Deal and My Name Is Earl.
“We’re thrilled to sign Kevin to a new contract and we’re looking forward to building on the outstanding progress he’s made to date, particularly launching theNo. 1 new scripted series during each of the past two seasons,” said Marc Graboff, president, NBC Universal Television, West Coast, to whom Reilly reports. “We’re bringing in new viewers and especially younger viewers with this season’s buzzed-about, critically acclaimed lineup and Kevin’s superb creative instincts and development skills have played a vital role in that progress.”
Reilly was named president in May 2004. His multiple entertainment responsibilities include primetime—including alternative, specials and long-form programs—late-night and daytime programming, and development, as well as scheduling and strategic planning for the NBC network.
