Fox Broadcasting Company has strengthened its Current Programming leadership team to ensure the continued success and growth of broadcast television's leading scripted programming lineup, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment and Marcy Ross, Executive Vice President, Current Programming.

In addition, David Sleven has been appointed Director, Current Programming. Previously Manager, Comedy Development, Sleven will also report to Ross and will be responsible for the day-to-day management of current FOX shows.

"With the level of competition today, it's more important than ever that we invest in top-notch talent to ensure that our programming remains innovative and relevant," said Reilly.
