Long-standing CBS Studios exec Kevin Berg is leaving after 25 years at the company, as the production division combines with Paramount TV Studios.

Berg was most recently SVP of production for CBS Network Television Entertainment and will see his remit taken on by former Netflix exec Liz Miller, EVP & head of production for Paramount TV Studios.

She reports into Bryan Rubin, COO of CBS, and will now oversee production for both studios, following the decision last year to put the divisions under the remit of George Cheeks.

The president & CEO at CBS and chief content officer for news & sports at Paramount+ then unveiled plans to combine back-office functions, with a handful of senior exec exits resulting.

Those already departed include Kim Rozenfeld, who left after the scripted originals unit at Paramount+ was moved into Paramount TV Studios, along with John Lynch, who was most recently EVP & head of production at Paramount TV Studios, and head of development, Jenna Santoianni.

Berg had been behind shows including the CSI and NCIS franchises, as well as The Good Fight, Survivor, The Amazing Race and Big Brother.

In a memo to staff, Rubin along with CBS Studios president David Stapf and Paramount Television Studios president Nicole Clemens said Berg’s “monumental contributions… will be felt for years to come.”

“Liz is a tireless worker and an accomplished leader. She is a trusted 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,” read the memo. US trade Deadline broke the news.
