U.S. cable network WE tv has expanded its programming team with three executive appointments.

The news follows the promotion of Lauren Gellert to the newly created position of executive vice president of development and original programming last month.

She was previously an executive producer on WE tv series such as Marriage Boot Camp, L.A. Hair and Kendra on Top. Prior to that, she was an executive producer for VH1.

The channel has also hired David Stefanou (pictured, left) as vice president of development. He will spearhead the search for new unscripted series. He formerly worked as the senior VP of programming for True Entertainment, where his credits included Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes for OWN, Too Cute for Animal Planet and The A List for Logo. Before that he was VP of original programming at Oxygen.

Both are based in New York City and report to Gellert.

Finally, Angela Molloy has become vice president of development in WE tv’s West Coast office. She is a veteran producer and executive producer whose unscripted credits include Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles and Life with LaToya for OWN. She also worked as director of programming for TLC.
