Angela Bromstad Out at NBC


The changes continue at NBC: Angela Bromstad, a seventeen-year Peacock vet who's been the network's head of entertainment for the past two years, just e-mailed her staff to let them know she'd be stepping down in advance of parent company NBC Universal's merger with Comcast. We already knew former Showtime kingpin Bob Greenblatt was coming in to be Bromstad's new boss (replacing the exiting Jeff Gaspin); the speculation around Hollywood had been that Bromstad would likely stay put till May, helping Greenblatt pick pilots for next year, then move on. Instead, it looks like Greenblatt wanted a clean break in advance of the pilot-selection process. He's expected to be very hands-on in the development process, but Bromstad's early exit means he might be ready to name a new executive to fill Bromstad's role as NBC's chief development exec. As long as Greenblatt renews Parks and Rec and Community for next season, we're cool with whomever he decides to hire.
