Inside Move: ATG scribe nests at NBC

Swartzlander co-exec producer on 'The Ellen Show'

Another orphaned Artists Television Group scribe has found a new home, as writer-producer Ric Swartzlander has moved his overall deal to NBC Studios.

NBC Studios will take over Swartzlander’s contract effective immediately.

Swartzlander is the second ATG player to end up at the Peacock’s in-house production arm; NBC Studios and Paramount Network TV recently agreed to share the services of former “Friends” scribe Adam Chase (Daily Variety, Aug. 31).

Swartzlander, who’s a co-executive producer on CBS frosh laffer “The Ellen Show,” previously served as co-creator and exec producer of NBC’s “Daddio.” He also spent time as a supervising producer for Ellen DeGeneres’ ABC sitcom.

Swartzlander had inked a two-year, seven-figure deal with ATG in June and joined the staff of “The Ellen Show” soon after. Just two months later, financial problems forced ATG to shut its doors.

ATG continues to shop its remaining roster around town. Swartzlander is repped by CAA and manager Joel Mandel.
