Tartikoff’s legacy

Collection established at USC School of Cinematic Arts on Thursday

The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Collection — containing thousands of correspondence and memorabilia from the late NBC Entertainment chief — was established at the USC School of Cinematic Arts at a campus event on Thursday.

Tartikoff’s widow, Lilly Tartikoff Karatz, donated the collection (which occupied more than 120 boxes) to the university at the urging of USC benefactor George Lucas, who was also in attendance. The cinema school’s dean, Elizabeth Daley, introduced the speakers, which included remembrances of Tartikoff by Ted Danson, Quincy Jones, “Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf and longtime NBC exec Dick Ebersol.

Wolf recalled winning the best-drama Emmy for “Law & Order” a few months after Tartikoff’s death in 1997, and said as he looked out at the audience from the stage, “almost every face I fell on owed their careers to Brandon Tartikoff.”
