Jeff Wachtel has been named executive vice president of series and long-form
programming at USA Network.

Most recently TV-series chief at Landscape Entertainment (NBC's The New
New Thing
), Wachtel will now oversee all of USA's series, original movies
and miniseries.

Wachtel -- once an executive producer on syndicated series Pensacola:
