I’ve already told you about personnel trouble inside all-shook-up NBC. Now I’m told that Ben Silverman is holding a big meeting at his new Pacific Palisades home for all the top NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios senior executives. (Perhaps in the basement wine room/screening room of his self-described “weekend oasis” purchased last spring and recently featured in Los Angeles Confidential magazine?) The confab’s purpose is to ask “Can’t we all get along?” and then “Hug it out”, says my source. (Remember, Ben did a cameo on Entourage last season, ergo Ari Gold’s phrasing.) “And then to figure out what to do with the network.” Oh yeah, that.
