Turner Network Television has named Michael Wright senior vice president and

Wright joins from CBS Entertainment where he served as vice president of
movies and miniseries.

In his new post, Wright reports directly to TNT executive vice president and
general manager Steve Koonin and is responsible for overseeing the development
for all original movies and miniseries at the channel.

Last December, TNT shuttered its stand-alone production unit as part of the
downsizing of the TNT Originals group.
