Silverman for NBC job

Producer Ben Silverman is in line for a top job at NBC, which has caused current exec Kevin Reilly to exit the network, despite signing a multi-year deal only weeks ago.

Silverman is responsible for bringing The Office and Ugly Betty to American television, along with The Biggest Loser and other shows under his Reveille production banner.

What is most interesting is that Silverman has the American version of Kath and Kim for the US too.

His appointment would be a significant boost to the show’s fortunes, which are still under development.

TEN also has a deal with Reveille in Australia, but didn’t win Betty when it was distributed by Buena Vista.
