EXCLUSIVE: Scott Landsman, VP original programming and development at Comedy Central, is leaving the network. After fielding multiple offers, I hear he is in talks to join Sony Pictures TV as VP comedy development. There, he is expected to fill the void left by Tal Rabinowitz, SVP U.S. comedy development and digital programming, who would be leaving the studio to run NBC’s comedy department. Landsman was at Comedy Central for 7 years after joining the network in 2004 as director, current programming. He was named director, original programming and development in 2006 and was promoted to VP original programming and development in 2007.
