Toldja! Jen Salke Signs For Big NBC Job

11 July 2011 6:01 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Deadline's Nellie Andreeva back on June 10th reported that this was happening -- and it's taken this long. As one of Bob Greenblatt's closest friends, 20th Century Fox Television Evp Jennifer Nicholson Salke had been expected to join him at NBC since before he even officially started at the network. Now she's signed on the dotted line to become NBC Entertainment President under Greenblatt, the entertainment chairman. We hear there should be an announcement this week -- but Nellie previously reported that, behind the scenes, Salke already has been involved in some NBC decisions in a consulting capacity. For instance, Salke and Greenblatt together recently approached Peter Traugott and made Universal Media Studios' first major pod deal with him. Also, this past season, Salke fielded two 20th TV projects that Greenblatt picked up to series for next season: dramas The Playboy Club and Awake. Even though Salke still »

Peter Traugott Closes 3-Year Overall Deal With Ums

13 June 2011 11:30 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In Universal Media Studios' first major pod deal under new NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt, the studio has signed a three-year overall pact with former Brillstein Entertainment Partners President of Television Peter Traugott. The agreement had been in the works for the past couple of weeks. Traugott will develop and produce scripted comedy and drama series for NBC and other networks through a newly launched production company. Joining him in the new company will be another senor Bep TV executive, Evp Rachel Kaplan. I hear Traugott, who worked with Greenblatt at Fox years ago, was the first producer Greenblatt and his new top lieutenant Jennifer Nicholson Salke approached about joining the studio. "Peter is a widely respected and successful executive and producer with a savvy instinct for exceptional television," said Greenblatt. "I’m thrilled that he wanted to join our re-emerging studio at NBC." Traugott called leaving Brillstein "a very tough decision. »

20th TV's Jennifer Salke Nears Move To NBC

10 June 2011 6:30 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

As one of Bob Greenblatt's closest friends, 20th Century Fox Television's Evp Jennifer Nicholson Salke had been rumored about joining him at NBC since before he even officially started at the network. I hear the deal between her and NBC is still far from being done, but it is expected to close. She would serve in an entertainment president capacity under entertainment chairman Greenblatt and may also have oversight of Ums. Nicholson Salke, who has continued to fulfill her duties at 20th TV, today is going on vacation, and many believe that she would move to NBC shortly after she comes back. I hear that behind the scenes, she has already been involved in some NBC decisions in a consulting capacity. Nicholson Salke still has another year or so on her contract at 20th TV, but I hear that the studio's chairmen Dana Walden, who is a close friend, »

Is Tal Rabinowitz Replacing Jeff Ingold As Head Of Comedy At NBC?

22 April 2011 2:56 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt didn't want to make major changes to his development team until after the upfronts next month. But I hear at least one move is already in the works: that NBC's head of comedy Jeff Ingold is expected to leave the network, and hot Sony TV comedy executive Tal Rabinowitz is in line to replace him. Also it's looking increasingly likely that 20th Century Fox TV Evp Jennifer Nicholson Salke could join her close friend Greenblatt at NBC as entertainment president after the upfronts. Rabinowitz has been VP comedy at Sony TV and a rising star at the studio, overseeing some of the highest-profile comedy projects including The Big C, one of the last series developed and picked up by Greenblatt while he was entertainment president at Showtime. In addition to comedy, Rabinowitz has overseen digital development and programming for Sony. She started her career at the weblet WB. »
