Scripted-logo-460_2Amy-Landecker-and-Jeffrey-Tambor-in-TransparentTransparent producer Amazon Studios has named Nick Hall as head of drama and promoted Gina Kwon and Ryan Andolina as co-heads of comedy.

Hall, Kwon and Andolina have moved as part of a reshuffle, as first reported by Deadline earlier today.

Hall initially joined Amazon as head of development of the digital service’s half-hour comedy department. He will now be doing hour-long programming as head of drama.

Kwon was formerly an executive in the comedy department and Andolina was an executive in Amazon’s development team.

All three will report to Joe Lewis, who is head of half-hour and drama series development.

In addition, two Amazon development executives have been tasked to oversee current series. Marc Resteghini (The Man In The High Castle, Mrs. Maisel) is now head of current hour and Jill Arthur (The Tick) is head of current half-hour.
