LOS ANGELES, June 29 (UPI) -- Disney-owned Touchstone Television has lost the prolific producing team of Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins to NBC Universal TV Studio.

Robbins told Daily Variety he and his partner enjoyed their 2-year run at Touchstone, but after working with NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly on "Inconceivable," they were looking forward to working at a studio aligned with NBC.

"It was a great experience, and there's a lot of opportunity for us at NBC," Robbins said. "We think there's a lot of room for us to grow there."

The men will have five series on the Big Six networks next season, including "Inconceivable" and an ABC midseason for the Jane Curtin-Fred Savage comedy "Crumbs." They also have a return with Warner Brother TV drama hits "Smallville," "One Tree Hill" and the comedy "What I Like About You," will also return in the fall.
