Veteran Lionsgate TV development executive Andy Richley has been named SVP of development at Fox 21 Television Studios. He will develop series for cable channels and streaming services, reporting to Fox 21 TV Studios president Bert Salke.
Like her studio, Fox 21, Tara Flynn’s role is expanding. The Los Angeles-based executive has been promoted to vice president of creative affairs at Fox 21 Television Studios, a merger of Fox 21 and Fox TV Studios that was announced Dec. 4. In that position, Flynn will be working with writers on the cable-focused studio’s roster to develop new projects, both in drama and in comedy, as well as identifying fresh talent and concepts for potential series.
Bert Salke has been tapped as president of the Fox 21 Television Studios, a newly formed unit that combines the Fox 21 and Fox Television Studios banners. The restructuring fills the void left at Fox TV Studios in August when Fox TV Studios president David Madden was tapped to oversee programming for Fox Broadcasting Co. Salke has headed the Fox 21 banner since 2010 and has steered its growth with such notable series as Homeland and Sons of Anarchy.
