Studios USA digs Sunset

Prod'n/distrib'n wing moves to new W. H'wood locale

Barry Diller’s Studios USA production-distribution wing is relocating as of today from the Universal lot to USA Networks’ new West Coast HQ at 8800 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood.

The physical separation from U comes 18 months after Diller stunned showbizzers with his $4 billion acquisition of most of Universal’s domestic TV assets.

However, the Studios USA accounting department and execs involved in physical production will remain on the U lot to stay close to the sound stages where many of Studios USA’s shows are shot, “Law & Order” among them.

Also, Studios USA’s research and marketing departments will stay on at U through the summer before relocating to USA’s Gotham HQ.

The main number for Studios USA at the new Sunset Strip outpost is (310) 360-2300.
