Sheffield, Latt fill ‘Edge’ void

Buddy Sheffield and David Latt have been named co-exec producers on “The Edge ,” the freshman TriStar TV-Fox Broadcasting Co. comedy, filling the void left by the recent exit of exec producer-creator David Mirkin.

TriStar exec VP of prime time series Eric Tannenbaum confirmed the appointments as well as a new producer credit for Julie Brown, a member of the show’s ensemble cast, and the addition of writer Jace Richdale as a consultant.

Fox has extended the show’s initial 13-show order by picking up five additional episodes.

Latt was previously supervising producer on the skitcom, while Sheffield is being brought aboard, having served as a writer-producer on the similarly formatted Fox series “In Living Color.””The Edge” is averaging a 5.2 rating, 9 share in Nielsen airing in a difficult Saturday time period.

Despite its short life span, “The Edge” hasn’t lacked for activity. Mirkin, who also produced the Fox series “Get a Life,” left two weeks ago citing creative differences. In an unrelated development, “The Edge” generated some news when word leaked that Spelling TV — irked by a “Beverly Hills, 90210” spoof–demanded a public apology from TriStar (Daily Variety, Oct. 19).
