Exclusive: I have learned that Warner Horizon Evp Craig Erwich will be leaving his post atop Warner Bros TV’s cable/alternative division. I hear Erwich opted not to renew his contract and will stay on until his current deal is up in March. Erwich was the No. 2 programming executive at Fox when Wbtv president Peter Roth — for whom Erwich had previously worked at Stephen J. Cannell Prods. — brought him over to build a cable and reality unit. At the time, Wbtv had a cable hit in The Closer and an unscripted one with ABC’s The Bachelor but no one to spearhead that part of the business for the studio. Over the past six years, Erwich oversaw Warner Horizon’s transformation into a major cable player claiming the top-rated series on two networks – Rizzoli & Isles on TNT and Pretty Little Liars on ABC Family, where the studio also has spinoff series Ravenswood. »
