In a stunning display of airbrushing at its finest, Gail Berman’s only moderately puffy mug graced the cover of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER online today in what is bound to be the talk of the town…until I let out details of a certain threesome with a married man in a jacuzzi at Sundance….
In a stunner of an executive shuffle that impacts a major network and a top movie studio, sources said Fox entertainment president Gail Berman is headed to Paramount Pictures to take on the top creative post under newly appointed chairman Brad Grey.
UPDATE AFTER THE JUMPSources said Berman informed News Corp. president and chief operating officer Peter Chernin of her decision to leave the network for Paramount late Monday night. Berman had been in negotiations with Fox to renew her contract with the network, which is set to expire later this year.
Berman has been Fox Broadcasting Co. entertainment president since 2000. During her tenure, the network has developed such signature series as the Emmy-winning “24″ and “Arrested Development.” She joined the network after developing its hit family comedy “Malcolm in the Middle” during her two-year tenure as the founding president of Regency Television, a joint venture of News Corp. and New Regency Enterprises. Before that, Berman was president of Sandollar Television, where she helped Joss Whedon develop “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” into a TV series for the WB Network.
SALARY IS REPORTED TO BE $6,000,000/year
