LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore no longer will serve on the Michigan Film Office Advisory Council.

Republican Gov. Rick Snyder has named a suburban-Detroit businessman to replace Moore, who had joined the council as an appointee of then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat.

Snyder announced Thursday he was renominating a second council member whose term expires along with Moore's. The governor says advertising executive Bill Ludwig will remain on the 14-member board, along with new member Ted Serbinski. Serbinski works with Detroit Venture Partners and is a former director of technology for A&E Television. Their four-year terms expire in 2018.

Moore won an Academy Award for the 2002 documentary "Bowling for Columbine." Other Moore films include "Roger & Me," ''Fahrenheit 9/11," ''Sicko" and "Capitalism: A Love Story."
