ATAS turns to Jellinek

Exec named chief operating officer of org

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has named Herb Jellinek chief operating officer. He will take over many duties formerly handled by exec director James Loper while a committee searches for a permanent replacement.

Loper, who Monday announced his plans to step down, will segue to a consulting role (Daily Variety, Aug. 11).

Jellinek will oversee all staff activities, reporting to the ATAS executive committee and board of governors. Jellinek, who received unanimous votes Wednesday from the exec committee and governors, will continue to also hold the title of chief financial officer.

In a separate development, the ATAS board of governors reaffirmed at its meeting its position that producers (such as co-producers and associate producers) who have been dropped from Emmy eligibility may appeal their case to the Awards Committee, which will have final decision-making authority.
