CW names Thom Sherman top creative executive

May 3, 2011 |  3:07 pm

As part of its continued restructuring of its executive ranks, the CW Network named Thom Sherman executive vice president of development.

In that role, he will oversee the creative efforts of the network and report to Mark Pedowitz, the new president of the CW.

Sherman and Pedowtiz have long ties. The two worked together at ABC. Sherman also oversaw development for J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, where he was involved in the development and launch of "Lost."

Pedowitz was named president of the CW last week. He is replacing Dawn Ostroff, who is leaving the network to relocate from Los Angeles to New York for personal reasons.

The CW is a joint venture between CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc.
