CURRENT PROGRAM EXECUTIVES ERIN UNDERHILL AND EDWIN CHUNG PROMOTED TO SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT LEVEL BY NBC AND UNIVERSAL MEDIA STUDIOS

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - September 13, 2010 -- NBC and Universal Media Studios announced several key promotions in the Current programming executive team as Erin Underhill and Edwin Chung both move up to Senior Vice President, Current Programming.

The announcements were made by Vernon Sanders, Executive Vice President, Current Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios, to whom both executives report.

"Erin and Edwin have exhibited outstanding leadership and possess passion and keen creative instincts for improving their shows," said Sanders. "Their respective experience and proven track record make these promotions an easy call. We congratulate them both."

Underhill oversees such series as the new drama "Chase" and the new anthology series "Love Bites" as well as the returning drama "Parenthood." She also developed "Heroes," "Chuck" and "Friday Night Lights," and currently oversees "Friday Night Lights."

In 2005, Underhill was named Vice President, Drama Development, and previously served as Vice President, Current Series, since September 2003. During her term there, she oversaw shows such as "The West Wing," "ER," "American Dreams" and "Third Watch." Earlier, Underhill was Director, Current Series.

Chung was named Vice President, Current Series, NBC Entertainment, in October 2006 (his title was changed to Vice President, Comedy Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios under a departmental reorganization in 2008).

Chung -- who previously had served as Director, Current Series, NBC Entertainment, since May 2004 -- remains the executive in charge of production for "30 Rock," "Community," "Chuck," and the new mid-season series "Perfect Couples." He also covered the first three seasons of "Friday Night Lights."

In addition, Chung oversaw production of "My Name Is Earl" during its entire run and did the same for "Scrubs" during its final three seasons on NBC. Chung also helps facilitate key product integration, web-related content, and cross-promotional opportunities on his series.
