2ND UPDATE: Also fired is Marc Hirschfeld, EVP for all NBC casting.

UPDATE: Maybe Zucker Will Just Do Away With Pesky NBC Programming Altogether…

The names I’m hearing: Katie O’Connell is EVP of NBC net drama development. Erin Gough is EVP head of comedy development at the studio. Elisa Roth is EVP head of drama development at the studio. Ted Frank was in current programming. And Libby Hansen was the No. 2 to axed NBC reality czar Craig Plestis. And Lauren Stein, who was the No. 2 in drama development at the studio under Elisa Roth. Awful, especially after Friday’ bloodbath.
