What's Behind Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show' Senior Staff Turnover

2 November 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On the air, it's business as usual for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. But behind the scenes, the NBC late-night leader is adapting to the exits of two longtime power players in as many weeks. First, producer-writer Gavin Purcell, a force on Fallon's digital team, jumped to Vox Media. Then, on Oct. 24, showrunner Josh Lieb, who had been with Fallon since his move to 11:35 p.m. in February 2014, left for a Universal Television deal. Filling Lieb's shoes are three Tonight producers: Gerard Bradford and Mike Dicenzo, who will handle creative efforts, and supervising producer

‘Tonight Show’ Shuffles Top Duties as Producer Josh Lieb Takes Universal TV Deal

24 October 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a new morning, of sorts, behind the scenes of NBC’s vaunted “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Josh Lieb, who has been the late-night show’s lead producer since its launch in February of 2014, will leave the program to take up writing and producing duties as part of a broader overall deal with Universal Television. His departure from the program follows a recent announcement that producer Gavin Purcell, who was instrumental in some of “Tonight’s” digital outreach, would move to digital-media outlet Vox overseeing video initiatives.

At “Tonight,” three producers will get expanded roles.  Katie Hockmeyer will assume oversight of production and Gerard Bradford and Mike Dicenzo will assume oversight of the show’s creative direction.

Josh has been a tremendous asset and has played a key role in helping us successfully launch ‘The Tonight Show.’  We will miss him and wish him all the best with this great new opportunity,” said »

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” producer and show runner Josh Lieb has signed an overall deal with NBC Universal Television that will include expanded roles for other “Tonight Show” staffers. “This is obviously bittersweet — there’s no show in the world more fun than ‘The Tonight Show.’ I’ve been able to run the circus every night. But I’d like to write more, and try different things, and — frankly– spend a little more time with my kids. Jimmy’s a joy to work with, and the troika taking over for me is more than qualified. You won’t even notice I’m gone, »

Nominations For The 68th Annual Writers Guild Of America Awards

6 January 2016 10:43 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Writers Guild of America has just announced the nominations for their annual awards for Best Screenplays (by writers who are guild signatories). That’s right, before you get nervous thinking that your favorite may have been left off the list, you must remember that the WGA is the group that is not all-inclusive and leaves out several of the top contenders each year due to them not being part of the guild or not following their very specific rules. For this reason, you won’t see Inside Out, The Hateful Eight, and Ex Machina in the Original Screenplay category or Room, Brooklyn, or Anomalisa in the Adapted screenplay category.

Taking a look at what’s left over for the nominations, we find many that were expected to make a showing, including Spotlight and Bridge of Spies for Original Screenplay, though they apparently had to sink to really low depths »
