Fox Exec Shakeup: Terence Carter to 20th, Charlie Andrews Replaces Him as Network Drama Head

We now know Michael Thorn’s replacement

Fox’s TV studio and broadcast network just performed an executive shuffle. Terence Carter (pictured above, left), Fox broadcast’s current drama chief, is heading over to the studio side to lead development. He backfills Michael Thorn’s vacated role there, and will report to Jonnie Davis.

Charlie Andrews (above, right) will replace Carter at the network side, where he’ll be responsible for all drama and event programming. Andrews will report directly to Thorn, who was shifted to network president when David Madden left for AMC.

Both Carter and Andrews have executive vice president titles in their new roles.

“Terence is a spectacular creative executive who has been responsible for some of the network’s biggest and boldest hits,” said Davis. “When Michael was tapped for the network Presidency, there was only one executive I thought of who could possibly fill his shoes. Terence is a smart and strategic programmer who already has a shorthand with our creative teams. I couldn’t be happier he will be joining us.”

“Charlie is an extremely well respected executive with impeccable taste and longstanding relationships throughout the creative community,” added Thorn. “We’ve been friends and colleagues for almost a decade and I can’t wait for him to return to the Fox family and re-join the incredible team we have in place.”

Carter came to Fox in 2009 from NBC. Andrews was an executive at Netflix between his Fox stints.
