(July 21, 2003 – Burbank, CA) - The Warner Bros. Television casting department has been reorganized by Mary V. Buck, Senior Vice President, Casting for the television studio. Veteran casting executive Anthony Sepulveda will remain with the company as Vice President, and casting executive Wendi Matthews joins the studio as Vice President, Casting. Independent casting directors have been hired to work on all Warner Bros.

He has received two Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Casting on “The West Wing” (current nominee for 02-03 season), one Emmy nomination for “Fail Safe,” and four Artios Award nominations for excellence in casting. His credits include “The West Wing,” “The Drew Carey Show,” “Friends,” “Family Matters” and “Knots Landing.” Matthews’ previous experience includes stints at FOX, Greenblatt-Janollari, Harbin/Hymson Casting and on numerous independent projects. Her casting credits include “24,” “American Family,” “Ally McBeal,” “Beverly Hills, 90210,” “In Living Color,” “The X-Files” and “Melrose Place.” Tony Birkley and Lisa Loia have also joined the department as managers.
