ViacomCBS unveiled yet another major restructuring Monday morning, this one focused on Paramount Pictures, which will now have separate leadership for its film and TV units.

Nickelodeon chief Brian Robbins will run the movie division—as president and CEO of Paramount—while Showtime chairman and CEO David Nevins will take over Paramount Television Studios, both adding the new responsibilities to their current roles. James Gianopulos, who had been Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO since April 2017 and had overseen both the film and TV divisions, will step down immediately, and serve in an advisory role through the end of the year.
