Disney Television Studios Sets Execs To Head Casting At 20th TV, ABC Studios & Fox 21

Disney Television Studios has finalized the leadership structure in its labels’ casting divisions, with SVP Stephanie Levinson promoted to head 20th Century Fox Television’s team, VP Jonathan Bluman to run ABC Studios’ division, and Lindsey Kasabian to oversee for Fox 21 Television Studios.

The trio, who will lead casting efforts of all series and pilots at their respective companies, will report to Sharon Klein, EVP Casting for Disney Television Studios and FX Entertainment. FX EVP Michael Katcher also reports to Klein.

“With the volume of programming we are producing and as my responsibilities have expanded, it became clear that we needed seasoned casting executives leading our efforts at each studio,” Klein said. “Stephanie was the first person I thought of to take on a leadership role in this new casting structure. She’s a fantastic executive with superb taste, poise and judgement and has earned the respect and admiration of everyone from showrunners to agents to executives.
