Warner Bros Television has revamped its business affairs team that services the production units of WBTV and sibling Warner Horizon Television. Adam Glick has been promoted and tapped for the newly created role of EVP Business Affairs at Warner Horizon Television, while Dan Limerick has been promoted to serve as sole head of business affairs at WBTV. Glick and Limerick had been SVPs and co-heads of biz affairs at WBTV. Carlos Williams, who previously was SVP Business Affairs at Warner Horizon, will take on the same title in a new role at WBTV. “Adam has clearly become one of the industry’s top studio business affairs executives,” said Craig Erwich, EVP Warner Horizon.
As part of the restructuring, Glick is overseeing all Warner Horizon operations that has 10 current series including The Voice, The Bachelor, America’s Best Dance Crew and Rizzoli & Isles among its growing fare. That leaves Limerick to oversee operations at WBTV, which has almost 30 shows in production and is one the biggest suppliers of primetime programming in the business. Its roster includes 2 Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory, Alcatraz, The Closer, Fringe, Gossip Girl, Harry’s Law, The Mentalist and The Vampire Diaries. His day-to-day duties include negotiating all of the company’s deals with performers, producers, writers and directors for its programming, as well as oversee department staff.
Williams, formerly SVP Business Affairs at Warner Horizon, is jumping to WBTV with the same title. He will manage negotiations and other business affairs activities for key series and producers, acting as the department’s sole SVP.
