Valerie Joseph, a veteran TV post-production supervisor who most recently worked on Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” has died after a brief illness.
Joseph died Sept. 21 in Los Angeles. The Philadelphia native was known for her love of the Philadelphia Eagles NFL franchise and for the warmth that she displayed with colleagues. She hosted a regular Friday night cocktail hour for editors and other post-production pros that she worked with on shows ranging from “The Wonder Years” and “Party of Five” to “Judging Amy,” “Greek” and the pilot of “The Good Wife.”
On the job, Joseph was admired for her attention to detail and creativity in the face of time constraints and budget challenges. Friends remembered her as outspoken with everyone from showrunners to actors, and also as someone who was also quick to share credit in success.
Joseph began her career as an assistant to TV director Peter Werner.
Joseph’s survivors include a brother and sister-in-law and four nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Rita Hayworth Dining Room on the Sony Pictures lot in Culver City. To RSVP, email Wei- Ning Yu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
