Multihyphenate Faulstich dies

He oversaw 'Lonesome Dove' adaptation

John Patrick (Pat) Faulstich, a Hollywood producer, studio executive, agent and manager, died March 21 in Port Charlotte, Fla., after a six-year battle with brain cancer. He was 55.

Faulstich began his career at ICM, becoming a literary agent, before moving to CBS in 1985. As head of miniseries at the network, Faulstich oversaw the adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s “Lonesome Dove.” He later oversaw drama series.

In the early ’90s, Faulstich joined Touchstone Pictures/Disney as VP of movie production. That was followed by a stint at Propaganda Films before returning to an agency, Broder Kurland Webb Uffner, in 1994, and later forming his own management company representing writers and directors.

A California native, Faulstich was married to television producer Jennifer Alward in 1985. She died of complications with diabetes in 2002.

He is survived by his mother, Claire, a son and a sister. Donations in his memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
