Entertainment president gets three-year deal
Fox Entertainment prexy Kevin Reilly has sealed a three-year deal to remain at the network.
The reup didn’t come as much of a surprise; Reilly’s on a roll this year. The network won the fall for the first time, thanks to some strong scheduling by his team — including the Thursday night duo “Bones” and “Fringe.” And Fox also boasts two of the year’s top-rated new series, “Glee” and “The Cleveland Show.”
Reilly has been at Fox since July 2007, having been recruited by his old FX boss, Peter Liguori (now at Discovery Communications).
Before that, he spent three years at NBC — from 2004 to 2007.
Reilly’s well known for his creative chops, having championed shows like “The Office” at NBC and “The Shield” at FX. Pact also comes as his boss, Fox Chairman Peter Rice, is busy with expanded duties, having gained oversight of FX in January. News of Reilly’s deal first appeared on Deadline.
