Salary Survey 2017: A Look at Who Makes What in TV

22 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The explosion of demand for high-end TV series and the emergence of deep-pocketed new buyers such as Netflix and Amazon has been an enormous windfall for marquee talent. Just ask Robert De Niro, or David Letterman, or Katy Perry.

Stars with brand names are more in demand than ever as dozens of competing outlets search for anything that will help a show stand out from the pack. The new business models that govern streaming services have also had the effect of raising upfront payments to top talent because traditional forms of generating a profit from a hit series — through international sales and off-network syndication — are no longer an option.

Among the winners in the past year on the drama side were Robert De Niro, who is in line to receive an eye-popping $775,00 per episode for the untitled Amazon drama series from director David O. Russell. Other big gainers include “Shameless” stars Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy and »

Harry Friedman and Mary Hart Talk Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Wins

27 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Lifetime Achievement awards at the 2017 Daytime Emmys will be presented to two luminaries of syndicated television: producer Harry Friedman and host Mary Hart.

After producing syndicated game-show sensations “Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy!” for more than 20 years, it isn’t a surprise that Friedman himself is a trivia question answer.

Friedman, who was promoted to executive producer of both shows in 1999 after starting as a “Wheel” producer in 1995, has been at his gig for so long that he holds a Guinness World Record for most game-show episodes produced. And the most Emmy Award nominations for a game-show producer (42) and most Emmy Award wins by a game-show producer (13).

So it’s no surprise he’ll receive a lifetime achievement award at this year’s Daytime Emmys creative arts ceremony. And it’s also understandable that it’s hard for Friedman to list all his favorite moments from the sets.

Many of us grew up with Vanna White as a staple in our evening routine, tuning in at 7:30 to watch the all-American blonde bombshell turn the Wheel of Fortune puzzle board into her own personal runway in one fabulously glitzy gown after the next. But while her white-blonde locks, golden tan, and that iconic name drop in Nelly’s “Ride Wit Me” have all helped to elevate her to iconic status, she remains somewhat of a mystery – and fans may not know about all of the hard work that goes into presenting that picture-perfect image night after night.
