NBC UNIVERSAL TELEVISION STUDIO PROMOTES LAUREN STEIN TO VICE PRESIDENT, DRAMA PROGRAMMING

UNIVERSAL CITY � January 30, 2007 -- NBC Universal Television Studio has promoted Lauren Stein to Vice President, Drama Programming, it was announced today by Laura Lancaster, Senior Vice President, Drama Programming, NBC Universal Television Studio, to whom she will report.

"Lauren is incredibly passionate and has proven herself to be a key member of the drama department," said Lancaster. "Her immense hard work and dedication to the projects she spearheads has resulted in some great drama programs over the last five years -- and her best work is yet to come."

Stein, who is currently a development executive for the NBC drama pilots "Life" (from Rand Ravich and directed by David Semel) and "Lipstick Jungle" (based on "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell's best-selling novel, written by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler and directed by Gary Winick), is also overseeing such current series as "Las Vegas" and the new mid-season drama "Raines" (starring Jeff Goldblum and created by Graham Yost).

Additionally, Stein was part of the development team responsible for the NBC mid-season drama "The Black Donnellys," from Oscar winners Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco.

Stein most recently served as Director, Drama Programming, NBC Universal Television Studio, since February 2004 (she was first appointed when the studio was known as NBC Studios just prior to the NBC-Universal merger that formed NBC Universal Television Studio in May 2004).

While at the former NBC Studios, Stein oversaw such series as "Boomtown," "Medical Investigation," "American Dreams" and "Crossing Jordan." She also was involved in the development of new drama series at that time as well.

Stein was Manager, Current Series, for the NBC network since August 2002. During her term, she was responsible for such series as "Boomtown," "American Dreams," "Miss Match," "Kingpin," "The Lyon's Den," "Mister Sterling" and "Crime & Punishment." In addition, she headed up the Diversity Writer Program.

Stein was born and raised in Rockville, Maryland and attended the University of Delaware, where she received a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice. After college, she supervised a juvenile crime study for the city of Philadelphia.

In 1998, Stein came to Los Angeles and worked in television production. She later became an assistant in current programs and an assistant in drama programs at Warner Bros. Television. She joined the Entertainment Associate Program at NBC in January 2002 until she was advanced to Manager, Current Series.
