‘Real World’ Producer Bunim-Murray Sets Leadership Changes as Founder Steps Down (Exclusive)

7 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The baton is being passed at Bunim-Murray Prods., the company that helped birth the modern reality TV business with the creation of MTV’s “The Real World.”

Bmp president Gil Goldschein has been promoted to chairman and CEO as company co-founder and chairman Jonathan Murray steps down from his executive role to focus on producing.

Murray said his decision has been a long time coming. As his 60th birthday approaches this year, he realized he’d spent nearly 30 years building up the company he founded in 1987 with his late producing partner Mary-Ellis Bunim, who died in 2004. At the outset, Bunim and Murray simply hoped to keep the company afloat from show to show; he never had any expectation that Bmp would grow to the size it is today.

“I always had this push and pull of really wanting to be as close to the product as possible and yet gradually »

Jemmye Carroll on Ryan Knight: 'I Will Forever Tell His Stories'

28 January 2015 3:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ryan Knight's final moments on The Challenge were characteristic of his right-here-right-now lifestyle: a sudden departure after a volatile series of events that demanded full attention and yet somehow imparted a sense of business unfinished. Indeed, Knight's own life was unfinished. Two months after his unexpected death on Nov. 27, MTV aired a special Challenge after show early Wednesday that featured a touching memorial to the five years Knight, 28, spent in front of the camera, starting with 2010's The Real World: New Orleans. During the tribute, Knight's castmates alternated between bursts of laughter and choked-back tears, none more so than Jemmye Carroll. »
