Network Lays Off 25

The CW let 25 staffers go as a result of declining ratings and the work stoppage due to the writers strike. Among those exiting the Burbank-based network are Kim Fleary, executive vice president of comedy development, 10 employees with Kids’ WB, and marketing jobs form the network’s CW Plus channel, Variety reported. The CW is a joint network of Warner Bros. and CBS Corp. that began airing in September 2006. The layoffs eliminates the network’s comedy department and merges the drama and current programming units into one scripted series department, Variety reported. The layoffs came as the network announced a new midseason schedule with new episodes of its scripted series “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill,” “Smallville,” and “Everbody Hates Chris.”
