LONDON — I’ve learned that Stephen Moore, TV managing director for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Canada, has been made redundant. He’d been in the job for less than a year. Moore was in charge of distributing Disney/ABC/ESPN programming to 240 territories worldwide. Shows included such ubiquitous Disney hits as Desperate Housewives, Lost, and Ugly Betty. Disney has confirmed Moore is being made redundant. It has no plans to replace him with somebody else overseeing foreign TV distribution. Instead, it’s putting greater emphasis on each territory taking responsibility for itself.
