Samuel Goldwyn TV has signed former CBS baseball producer Ric LaCivita to serve as producer of “American Gladiators,” which is entering its sixth season.
The company has also cleared its “Samuel Goldwyn Premiere Showcase” film package — previously titled “November Gold 4”– in 27 of the top 30 markets for a total of 70% of the country. Retitling stems from the syndicator’s desire to more accurately reflect the new barter network, which was created to premiere 15 recent projects acquired from HBO.
