Good morning. It’s Monday, February 27, 2006, and this is your first early morning briefing.

Stacy Snider, Chairman of Universal Pictures, announced she is leaving Universal in favor of the head job at Dreamworks SKG, which was recently acquired by Paramount Pictures.  As CEO and Co-Chairman of Dreamworks, Stacey will collaborate with co-Chair David Geffen along with Steven Spielberg on which movie projects they will produce.  The studio will put out between six and 8 titles a year, with budgets of up to $85 million.  The films will subsequently be distributed by Paramount. Stacy reports to Brad Grey, Chairman/Paramount.

The entertainment industry lost two notables this weekend.  Don Knotts at the age of 81, and Darren McGavin at the age of 83. 

  • Don Knotts you know, of course, as Deputy Barney Fife.  Knotts began his career as a ventriloquist performing at parties and functions in his hometown of Morganstown, West Virginia. When he joined the Army during World War II at the age of 19, he was assigned to the Special Services Branch and where he entertained the troops as a comedian (leaving his ventriloquism days behind him). Eventually he found himself on Broadway playing a small role in the play No Time for Sergeants, which coincidentally starred Andy Griffith. The rest, as they say, was television history.  Knotts received the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor as Barney Fife five times.  The next time Knotts and Griffith teamed up, it was in 1992 on Griffith’s new show Matlock. Most recently, Knotts was the voice of Mayor Turkey Lurkey in Disney’s animated movie Chicken Little.
  • Darren McGavin‘s first acting role was as a student in the film A Song to Remember starring Merle Oberon in 1945.  Since then, he was one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, appearing in numerous anthology series of early television, as Mike Hammer in the 1956 series by the same name, as Kolchak in The Night Stalker (1974), and as the father Mr. Parker in the now perennial classic TV movie, A Christmas Story.  McGavin won an Emmy award for his portray of Murphy Brown’s father in several episodes of that series in 1988.

The Tennis Channel has signed a deal with Echostar to be carried on the DISH network, carried on the America’s Top 180 tier.  The additional carriage brings the network’s subscriber count up to 9 million.

* NEW ORDERS / CASTING / DEVELOPMENT / PRODUCTION *The CW has ordered up a pilot of a drama project called Runaway from Sony Pictures Television.  The story is about a family where the husband/father is accused of murder.  Believing him to be innocent, the entire family goes into hiding, in hopes of biding enough time to prove his innocence.  This project was originally on the UPN development slate.

A new reality project from CBS and RJ Cutler featuring radio host and financial know-how guy Dave Ramsey who will work with various families to help them get out from under their financial woes.  CBS Paramount Domestic TV is producing.

NBC has given the official go to a pilot from John Wells called Prodigy/Bully from Warner Bros. TV about the son of the family who is a bonafide genius and uses his brans to get whatever he wants.

Casting Notes …

Fox‘s new comedy pilot Til Death from Sony Pictures TV is currently talking with Brad Garrett to join the cast. The set up is a young newlywed couple who moves next door to a couple married for many many years.  Garrett would play the long married man, while Eddie Kaye Thomas has been previously cast to play the newlywed husband.  I suppose this finally puts to rest any remaining hope Garrett will get a spin-off series from Raymond.

In Fox‘s drama pilot Southern Comfort from 20th Century Fox TV about a woman who’s mob husband goes to jail, leaving her to run the business, Madeleine Stowe has been cast as the female lead.

Five casting notes at different ABC projects:

  • Christine Taylor has signed on in the comedy pilot 52 Fights, based on the book, about a young’s couple transition into marriage.
  • The legal comedy project Women in Law has added Regina King, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon and Jill Ritchie to the cast which already includes Kelli Williams.
  • Drama pilot Day Break from Touchstone TV has added Adam Baldwin in this project starring Taye Diggs about a cop framed for murder.  Baldwin will play a veteran police officer.
  • Jonathan Silverman has joined the cast of In Case of Emergency from Touchstone TV, a comedy project about four high school friends who meet up again years later. ABC has ordered 6 episodes.
  • October Road from Touchstone TV has added Jay Paulsen to the lineup.  This drama project is about a novelist returning home.

The CW has added Tia Mowry in its pilot project The Game, in the role originally cast with Cynthia Addai-Robinson.  The Game focuses on the wives of professional football players.

* EXECUTIVE MOVES *Sandra Gehring becomes Corporate Director/Marketing and Promotion for the Weigel Broadcasting Company.   Sandra will be responsible for long-term strategic planning of brands, platforms, and audience and revenue streams for the Weigel-owned stations in Chicago, Milwaukee and South Bend markets.
