[via press release from NBC Universal Television Studio]

ANGELA BROMSTAD NAMED PRESIDENT, NBC UNIVERSAL TELEVISION STUDIO

BURBANK, Calif. -� May 25, 2005 �- Angela Bromstad has been named President, NBC Universal Television Studio, it was announced today by Jeff Zucker, President, NBC Universal Television Group.

Bromstad had shared leadership of the increasingly prolific studio with David Kissinger -- each as Co-President � since its formation after NBC and Universal combined companies in May 2004. Kissinger has left the company to head up Conaco productions.

In making the announcement, Zucker said. "Angela and David have made a wonderful team for the past year and have led the studio to unprecedented heights. We want to thank David for his contributions and we look forward to maintaining a great working relationship with him at Conaco for many years to come."

Zucker continued: "Angela has proven herself time and again as a savvy, progressive and imaginative leader who has earned her stripes among her industry peers. We won't miss a beat with this promotion and the studio's thriving future under her guidance has never looked better."

"I'm really thrilled with what we've accomplished at the studio in such a short time," said Bromstad. "We've assembled a sensational team and I'm honored and proud to be a part of this group. We're looking forward to even greater success in the months and years ahead."

Bromstad was already a veteran program executive with network and studio success when she was named Co-President of the NBC Universal Television Studio in May 2004. She now leads one of the nation's largest production companies and reports to Zucker.

As President, Bromstad is responsible for the development of scripted comedy and drama series for the NBC Universal Television Studio, as well as for overseeing the studio's current series production for such NBC shows as "Will & Grace," "Las Vegas," "Crossing Jordan," and the mega-successful "Law & Order"-branded dramas. In addition, Bromstad has seen the production company's new drama "House" become a breakout hit on Fox this season while its cable programs -- such as "Monk" for USA Network and "Battlestar Galactica" for SCI FI � have also achieved hit status.

New series for next season from NBC Universal Television Studio include "Fathom" and "Thick and Thin" (for NBC) and "Sons and Daughters" (for ABC), among others.

At the time the two studios combined in 2004, Bromstad had served as Executive Vice President, NBC Studios since June 2003. She had already shepherded such dramas as the Peabody Award-winning "Boomtown," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "American Dreams" and "Kingpin" (all for NBC) as Senior Vice President of Drama Development for NBC Entertainment. Prior to that in 2000, she served as Vice President, Drama Development, NBC Entertainment.

Bromstad first began to champion hit series in August 1999 when she became Vice President of Primetime Series for NBC Studios, where she was charged with overseeing the series development of "Ed," and the production of the drama series "Providence" and "Profiler."

Before her work in series at NBC Studios, Bromstad was turning out successful longform programs during a two-year stint as Vice President for Miniseries and Motion Pictures for Television for the same studio. While there, she supervised the production of the highly rated miniseries "The '60s" and the hit movie "Atomic Train," among others.

Since October 1996, Bromstad had held a similar position as Vice President, Miniseries and Television, NBC Entertainment. She began her NBC career as Director, Miniseries and Motion Pictures for Television, in May 1994, where she developed the hit miniseries "The Beast" during the 1995-96 season.

Bromstad came to NBC Entertainment from Freyda Rothstein Productions (in association with Hearst Entertainment), where she had served as Vice President, Creative Affairs, from 1991-94. Before that, she worked as Director of Creative Affairs there between 1988-91.

It was at Telepictures Productions that Bromstad began her career as an assistant after attending the University of Southern California. She is married, has two children, and resides in Los Angeles.
