Los Angeles-based LMNO Productions has upped three of its execs into new and expanded roles, in a restructuring that’s in response to what the company calls an “expanding development and production docket both domestically and internationally.”

Ed Horwitz (pictured), previously SVP of production, takes on the newly created role of executive vice president of international production and distribution. The new remit will see Horwitz oversee the company’s international distribution business as well as its ongoing rights relationship with Cineflix. He will also continue to oversee all of the company’s programming.

Lisa Bourgoujian, previously senior vice president of the company’s cable group, is now senior vice president of current programming. In the newly created role she will oversee all of LMNO’s pilots, specials and series while also continuing to serve as executive producer on select projects.

Lori Rothschild, meanwhile, has been upped from VP of development to SVP and also takes on the head of corporate communications position.

“With this creative team in place, we have strengthened the foundation of our company and positioned us for long term growth in the global entertainment market,” said company president and CEO Eric Schotz.
