Inside Move: U’s security team in the doghouse

Studio to possibly build on-the-lot kennel

Universal Studios, Universal Pictures, and now … Universal Kennels?

All of Hollywood’s movie studios have beefed up security in the post-Sept. 11 world, sparing no expense to add concrete barricades, armed guards, X-ray machines for packages and even explosives-sniffing dogs.

But with the duration for the war on terrorism looking more and more like months or years, U has begun to look at ways to cut security costs: Insiders familiar with Universal’s plans say the dogs are “here to stay” and that the studio is planning to build an on-the-lot kennel to house the half-dozen currently rented canine patrolers.

A spokeswoman for the studio would not confirm the kennel plan but did say that “considering the long-range aspects of our security plans, we’re looking at all our options.”
