Erik Rechsteiner has been boosted to Svp Current Series and NBCUniversal International exec Kristen Del Pero has been brought over to Universal TV as Svp Current Series and International Development.
The moves come as Universal has reached 40 series currently ordered to production, most in the studio’s history.
“I’m extremely proud of the unprecedented growth at Universal Television over the last three years,” division president Pearlena Igbokwe said in a press release. “It gives me great pleasure to recognize those executives who have helped make it possible and will continue to advance our studio.”
Del Pero and Rechsteiner will report to JoAnn Alfano, Evp Current Series and International Development.
Universal also promoted three director-level execs: Brittany Little, to VP Drama Development; Brian Salb to VP Current Series; and Megan Macmillan to VP Comedy Development.
