Sternberg ups reality maven

Murphy named head of production

Scott Sternberg Prods. has promoted Patrick Murphy to head of production and landed a second-season renewal of “That’s the Question” at GSN, clearing the way for 65 half-hours of the pop-culture gameshow.

Murphy, whose new title is senior VP and exec in charge of production, has proved himself in his work on three Sternberg shows: “Hey Paula,” the Bravo reality series focusing on Paula Abdul that premiered last month; “The Academy,” a weekly nonscripted hour to premiere on MyNetworkTV in September that follows trainees putting themselves through the grueling regimen required of candidates to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept.; and the relationship show “Seduce a Celeb,” for the online GoFish network.

While continuing with these three skeins, Murphy will oversee “The Real CSI,” a proposed series that has wangled the full cooperation of the Hertzberg-Davis Forensic Science Center at Cal State L.A.

Murphy was previously a senior VP of Bunim-Murray Prods. (“Real World”).

The second season of “That’s the Question” begins Sept. 10.
