Paramount Domestic TV has filled out the production staff for its upcoming syndie talkshow with Howie Mandel, set to bow June 22.
Ivy Alexenburg has been named senior talent exec for “The Howie Mandel Show,” with Joyce M. Coleman also joining the bookings department as talent executive. Appointments were unveiled Monday by exec producers Mandel, Joachim Blunck and Michael Rotenberg.
Alexenburg, a veteran of NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” most recently worked as a talent exec for Columbia TriStar TV Distribution’s “Vibe.” Coleman’s credits include stints with “The KTLA Morning News” and NBC’s “Leeza.”
Syndie strip has added to its on-camera ensemble with the appointment of Brianne Leary as announcer and Steve Goldstein as music director. Leary, a former correspondent for ABC’s “Good Morning, America,” has recently been seen as host of “Creature Comforts” on the Animal Planet cabler. Her role is described as a mix of announcer and sidekick.
Goldstein will head up “The Howie Mandel Show’s” house band, and he’ll also take on the task of writing the show’s theme song. Goldstein has worked as a producer-arranger for such artists as Smokey Robinson and Dolly Parton, as well on such features as “Primary Colors” and “The Birdcage.”
