Claman opts for more Fox

sr. VP of drama signs new deal

Danielle Claman has signed a new three-year contract to remain at Fox Broadcasting Co. as senior VP of drama series programming.

Claman had been hinting to Fox execs that she might leave the company when Rob Dwek was hired above her as the No. 2 executive to Fox Entertainment Group prexy Peter Roth (Daily Variety, Nov. 10, 1997).

Claman said she and Dwek are working very well together, and she has been promised that if Fox ever moves to a team system that she is in line to head the drama team, including current drama programming. Right now, Claman focuses most of her efforts on development.

“Peter Roth and David Hill made me feel incredibly wanted here, and I’m thrilled to be working with them in a renewed capacity,” she said. “My relationship with Rob (Dwek) is terrific. He’s incredibly respectful of me, and I am of him. I feel really good.”

Claman first joined Fox June 1992 as a director of drama development, and in 1994, she was promoted to vice president. Claman was first named senior VP of drama series programming last May, and during her tenure, she has helped develop nearly every drama now on the air at Fox.

Claman is overseeing seven new drama pilots for fall, including “Hollyweird,” “The Invisible Man,” “Astoria” and “Daybreak.”
