What’s So Funny About Ben Silverman’s Entrepreneurship?


Today at NBC's executive panel at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California, NBCU prime-time entertainment prez Angela Bromstead told the crowd that Ben Silverman's departure to found his new "broad-based, 360-degree, multi-creative company" was a long-planned move and not a hastily thrown-together exit strategy: "I think that this has always been Ben's plan, to transition back to his entrepreneurial roots." Then, after the room busted up as though she'd said something hilarious, she clarified, "I didn't mean to elicit laughter." [Movieline]
