Leight honored with Jablow Award

The Writers Guild of America East has tapped former president Warren Leight to receive its Richard B. Jablow Award for service to the guild.

Nod will be presented at the Feb. 4 awards ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria. Jablow helped found the WGAE, authored its constitution and served as its first counsel.

Leight served as president from May to September, filling the post after longtime president Herb Sargent passed away. He had been VP in addition to serving on the negotiations committee and the Committee for Informed Membership.

Leight’s film credits include “The Night We Met” (which he also directed), “Dear God,” “Me and Him” and the documentary “Before the Nickelodeon.” He’s currently co-exec producer and writer of NBC’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent.”

Leight’s theatrical writing includes “Side Man,” “Glimmer and Shine,” “Fame Takes a Holiday,” “James and Annie” and “No Foreigners Beyond This Point.”
