It’s Not TV: HBO, The Company That Changed Television: Fall and Rise

  • SoundOnSight
Failure is inevitable. Success is elusive.

Steven Spielberg

As HBO’s CEO, Michael Fuchs, who’d come up through the company’s programming side, had spent 11 years working to transform the service from a movie channel with some pleasant original filler into a true programming platform. Ironically, Fuchs’ vision wouldn’t come to full fruit until after he’d left the company in May 1995, and it would happen under a guy who had no programming experience at all: Jeff Bewkes, who took over the CEO’s slot after Fuchs’ departure.

A friend of mine in the company who’d worked with Bewkes once explained his programming philosophy while we were talking about some of the company’s big dollar extravaganzas, like Band of Brothers. Bewkes didn’t interfere with the creative side. “If you can make it make business sense to him, Jeff’ll say, ‘Go ahead.’ If you can

Memories From the Set: Grimm's Claire Coffee Recalls Gigs on West Wing, Psych, NCIS and More
A recurring feature in which we ask your favorite stars to reminisce about past gigs

Claire Coffee‘s first small-screen gig was a loud and proud affair.

Proud, because she had nabbed a small part on HBO’s The Mind of the Married Man while she was still in college. And loud, because… well, we’ll let her tell it.

Rewind TV: Waking the Dead; The Mind of the Married Man; Piers Morgan's Life Stories

After 11 years of heinous acts, there was still plenty of murder to cram into Waking the Dead's final episode

Waking the Dead (BBC1) | iPlayer

The Mind of the Married Man (Sky Atlantic)

Piers Morgan's Life Stories (ITV1) | ITV player

Where now for the savants of sadistic suffering and connoisseurs of kiddie killing? What next for aficionados of asphyxiation and devotees of deviancy? These were the questions left dangling like a pervert's privates at the end of the final-ever episode of Waking the Dead. Who will meet the obvious demand out there for criminally sick and twisted plotlines?

All we can say for certain is that the bar on wackjob antics was raised to a fiendishly intimidating height by the send-off – after nine series, 11 years and about 500 butcherings – of Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd (Trevor Eve). It began with Boyd's sacking by the smug jobsworths at Scotland Yard who – the gormless desk-jockey bureaucrats!

FX UK takes WB and Comedy Central shows

FX UK takes WB and Comedy Central shows
LONDON -- Fox International Channels U.K. said Thursday that it has signed separate deals with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution and Comedy Central for series, specials and movies on its planned FX UK channel. Series titles in the deal with Warners include HBO comedy The Mind of the Married Man and Lucky, a comedy produced by Castle Rock Entertainment for FX Networks. The Comedy Central deal features that channel's hit The Man Show. Hernan Lopez, senior vp and managing director of Fox International Channels UK, said the deals reflect the direction the FX UK channel will take when it is launched via the Sky satellite platform in the first quarter of 2004. It has already set such Fox shows as NYPD Blue and The X-Files for its lineup. "Today's men, just like FX, can go from the introspection of 'The Mind of the Married Man' all the way to girls jumping on trampolines and not be apologetic about it," Lopez said. Fox International vp broadcasting and marketing Jason Thorp said the company has been studying the U.K. market for some time. "We have discovered that despite the desire of the marketing industry to segment the male audience, the reality is that the majority of men age 24-44 fit into a broad category that we have called 'Adultman, '" Thorp said. "Despite earning capacity, social background or marital status, 'Adultman' is linked by universal interests and concerns. Women and having a laugh come high on that list."
