MTV Revives Animation Division

MTV has assigned senior VP of series Brent Haynes to run a new department for comedy and animation programming.

The network, which in the 1990s aired such prominent animated series as Beavis and Butthead, The Maxx, Liquid Television and The Head, is looking to return animation to its schedule after shutting down its efforts several years ago, reports Variety.

Two additional executives have been added to the department: Jason Gwozdz, a former development executive at the Comedy Network in Canada will be VP of comedy and animation; and Brooke Posch, a former producer on Last Call with Carson Daly, will be a senior director.
