Veteran Warner Bros. TV executive Roth to step down next year
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Veteran television manager Peter Roth will be leaving his job as chairman of Warner Bros. Television Group in 2021, the AT&T Inc studio said in a statement Friday.
Roth, who has been with Warner Bros. for 22 years, was responsible for developing several hit shows including "The West Wing", "The Big Bang Theory", "Two and a Half Men", "Gilmore Girls" and " Gossip Girl". ""
Prior to Warner Bros., he developed programming for Fox and ABC television networks.
Ann Sarnoff, chairman and general manager of Warner Media Studios and the Networks Group, said in a statement that Roth "believed that this was the right time to change a new leader for the group".
Roth said he was grateful that he could "say goodbye at the right time, in the right way and for the right reason."
Sarnoff took over the studio and networking group in August as part of a restructuring of AT & T's WarnerMedia unit to focus on
on the HBO Max streaming business.
No substitute for Roth was named.
