John Litvack, TV Executive Who Helped Guide WB Network Creators, Dies at 69

23 March 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

John Litvack, the experienced WB Network executive who helped teach J.J. Abrams, Joss Whedon, Greg Berlanti and others how to run television series, died March 21 at a long-term care facility in Los Angeles of complications following heart surgery. He was 69 and had been in failing health since undergoing triple-bypass surgery in January.

Litvack was considered an elder statesman during his 1997-2004 run as head of scheduling and current programming at the WB Network. Earlier in his career he’d held exec posts at CBS, NBC and Disney TV. He spoke to creatives from experience thanks to the time he spent time behind the camera as a director of soap operas in the 1970s and as a co-exec producer of “Hill Street Blues” in the NBC drama’s final season.

“He knew story,” said Jordan Levin, the former WB Network president who also worked with Litvack at Disney in the early 1990s. »

Oscar Nominees Blur Lines Between Big and Small Screens

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the divide between film and TV becomes increasingly difficult to discern, it’s far less uncommon to see well-known TV actors playing juicy roles on the big screen. And now that TV is no longer the death knell it once was for performers hoping for a film career, some of the industry’s best talent is emanating from TV. It’s also the medium actors are most frequently recognized for. As frontrunner supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons told Variety last year before “Whiplash,” with his breakthrough role, opened, “It’s rather sobering to realize more people have seen my Farmers Insurance commercials than everything put together.”

Among the year’s acting Oscar nominees, several are known for their series work, including Steve Carell (NBC’s “The Office”), Benedict Cumberbatch (PBS’ “Sherlock”), J.K. Simmons (TNT’s “The Closer,” NBC’s “Growing Up Fisher”), and Laura Dern (HBO’s “Enlightened”). Patricia Arquette »

Stars' Real Names Revealed! You Won't Believe What Their Parents Called Them

In the conference room that launched 1 million entertainment careers, one huge decision was definitely addressed: the star's name. In Elton John's case, Reginald Kenneth Dwight was ditched for a much catchier Elton John, of course. Whoopi Goldberg trumped the actress's given name Caryn Elaine Johnson (no surprise there!). The stars we think we know everything about, like Miley Cyrus - who is no stranger to sharing the intimate cleavage selfie - are actually complete strangers to us, with sometimes very ordinary names.

SAG Awards win sends Birdman Oscar hopes soaring

26 January 2015 7:39 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Oscar hopes for Birdman got an enormous updraft over the weekend with big wins from the acting and producing guilds, possibly sending the comedy soaring over the perceived Academy Awards front-runner Boyhood.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's elegantly crafted backstage romp won best ensemble Sunday night at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild, a day after it also won the top honor at the Producer Guild Awards. Both guilds are seen as highly predictive of which film will triumph at the Oscars, which will be held Feb. 22.

Richard Linklater's Boyhood, the acclaimed indie made with the unprecedented real-life time-elapse of 12 years, has long held as the awards seasons favorite. But Birdman fills the role of a classic Oscar winner, likeShakespeare in Love, as a celebration of showbiz. Its fortunes look especially bright considering the last seven Producers Guild Awards winners have also won best picture at the Academy Awards.
