Three’s a charm for Tartikoff Legacy kudos

Honorees feted Jan. 25 at NATPE's annual confab

A trio of Emmy winners — Lifetime prexy-CEO Carole Black and producers James Burrows and Dick Wolf — will receive Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards from the National Association of Television Program Executives.

Named in honor of the former prexy who revived NBC as a mid-1980s ratings powerhouse, second annual kudos recognize “extraordinary passion, leadership, independence and vision” in TV programming.

Black, who oversees Lifetime’s three cable networks as well as its book, radio, homevideo and online divisions, received the Governor’s Primetime Creative Arts Emmy last year for cabler’s efforts to address domestic violence against women.

NBC comedy veteran Burrows has won Emmys for “Cheers,” “Frasier” and “Will & Grace,” which he currently directs and produces.

Wolf is the creator and exec producer of NBC’s “Law & Order” franchise. He will unveil his latest skein, “Law & Order: Trial By Jury,” in early 2005.

Honorees were selected by NATPE’s executive committee and the editors of Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and Variety from a pool of candidates nominated online. They will be feted Jan. 25 at NATPE’s annual confab.
