In addition to his Hollywood career, Zabielski, who has been tapped to helm New Line’s Police Academy remake, serves as a reserve police officer in West Hollywood. It’s been another strong selling season for Gluck and Olive Bridge, with multiple put pilot commitments and a 22-episode order from NBC for a comedy starring Michael J. Fox. UTA reps Gluck, Bobrow and Zabielski who is managed by Underground. »
