CBS Studio’s Senior Executive Vice President of Production Kevin Berg is departing after a quarter of a century with the company. CBS Studios is undergoing restructuring measures with Paramount TV Studios, which began last October, consolidating operations across both studios.
“Kevin’s monumental contributions to CBS’ success are far-reaching and will be felt for years to come. We are grateful for his dedicated and valuable service to the company,” CBS said in a memo to staffers.
Berg was responsible for growing CBS’ lineup from three shows to over 70 series, including CSI and NCIS, which are two of the network’s most successful franchises. He also oversaw the development of Blue Bloods, The Good Fight, Seal Team, Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Talk, and Big Brother. Late-night shows such as The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show With James Corden are a few more of Berg’s lengthy contributions to the network.
Taking his place is Liz Miller, the Executive Vice President and Head of Production for Paramount TV Studios since 2019. She will begin overseeing both roles starting Monday.
“We are confident that under Liz’s leadership and on the foundation Kevin set at CBS, the combined talents and resources of our teams will support both studios and their impressive slates at their customary high level, and continue to drive innovation for the future.”
Miller helped develop a number of popular shows for Paramount+, including Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies and the new Star Trek series. She also produced Jack Ryan, Bridgerton, Outer Banks, The Good Wife, and The Good Fight.
“She is no stranger to everyone at CBS, having spent most of her career at CBS Studios before her time at Netflix and then PTVS. Liz is a tireless worker and an accomplished leader. She is a truster partner with her counterparts at all the networks and streamers, as well as with producers across the globe, overseeing the production process as efficiently as possible, always with a smile and steady resolve.”
