NBC ENTERTAINMENT EXPANDS SCRIPTED NETWORK LEADERSHIP WITH PROMOTIONS AND NEW HIRE

Network Names Trio of Senior Vice Presidents with Hiring of Lisa Roos and Upping of Deepak Jesrani and Mike Nunes

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - Feb. 15, 2019 - NBC is bolstering its scripted leadership with a pair of promotions for NBC programming executives Deepak Jesrani and Mike Nunes, and the hire of Lisa Roos.

Roos, formerly of Warner Horizon Television, has been named Senior Vice President, Drama Development, and joins a team that includes Jesrani and Nunes, who have been elevated to Senior Vice President, Drama Development and Senior Vice President, Current Programming, respectively.

"This team has been responsible for some of the most beloved shows on television, and we are so happy to recognize Deepak and Mike's talent, dedication and significant contributions to our programming," said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. "We're also very excited to have Lisa join NBC. She has sharp creative instincts and deep relationships across the industry and will make a great addition to an already strong drama development team."

Roos comes to NBC from Warner Horizon Television, where she served as Vice President, Scripted Programming and oversaw the development of content for basic cable networks such as FX, TNT, Cinemax, USA, Syfy, Freeform, MTV, Lifetime, NatGeo and CMT, including the first season of Lifetime's "You" (now a Netflix original series). In 13 years at Warner Bros. Television, Roos rose through the ranks of drama development, managing broadcast pilots that include "Gotham," "Person of Interest," "The Mentalist," "The Following" and "The Vampire Diaries."

A member of the NBC family since 2002, Jesrani most recently held the title of Vice President, Drama Development, where he was instrumental in shepherding several hit shows, including "Manifest," "New Amsterdam" "Timeless" and "Blindspot," as well as upcoming dramas "The Enemy Within" and "The InBetween." Previously, Jesrani worked on long-running series that include "The Blacklist," "Chicago Fire" and "Grimm" while serving as Director of Drama Development. Early in his tenure at NBC, Jesrani supported both the drama development and current programming teams, contributing to a number of hits, including "Chuck," "My Name Is Earl" and "Heroes."

A 13-year veteran of NBC, Nunes most recently held the title of Vice President, Current Programming, where he has fostered and continues to guide some of the network's biggest hits, including television's #1 drama "This Is Us," "The Good Place," "Superstore," recent breakout "New Amsterdam," the beloved "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and the upcoming Michael Schur comedy "Abby's." Beginning his NBC career in drama development, Nunes has risen through the ranks and handled a number of hit shows, including "Community," "Parenthood" and "Revolution."
