Longtime business affairs exec Adam Glick is returning to Warner Bros. Television where he will reprise his role as exec vice president of business affairs and lead negotiations and dealmaking for the division, Variety has learned. Glick steps in as his former co-EVP Dan Limerick departs the company.
Limerick is exiting Warner Bros. TV to pursue an opportunity elsewhere, insiders tell Variety. His new announcement is expected to be made soon.
Glick vacated his EVP gig at WBTV in 2012 to build and expand the business affairs department at the Warner Bros.-based Warner Horizon Television. Prior to moving over to Horizon, Glick had served as co-head of business affairs for WBTV with Limerick since 2008. Returning to his old post, in light of Limerick’s departure, seemed like a natural fit, according to sources close to the situation.
“Adam has been one the studio’s top business executives for many years and has served in each of his roles with distinction,” said WBTV exec VP Brett Paul, who made the announcement with Warner Bros. president and CCO Peter Roth. “During his recent tenure at WHTV, he expanded his expertise across all genres of programming and across all original outlets of distribution, making him an even more key player of our senior management team. Adam is known not only for his business acumen, but also for his character and integrity, as he brings with him an innate sense of fairness and trust. He has earned the respect of our community the old-fashioned way, an opinion shared throughout the industry. We look forward to his continued leadership.”
In his new role, Glick will oversee the department’s staff and will manage its day-to-day operations. Among his responsibilities are negotiating all of the company’s deals with performers, producers, writers and directors, as well licensing deals with the various original distribution platforms for that programming.
Glick first joined Warner Bros. in 1999. Before joining the company, Glick was director of legal and music business affairs for Carsey/Werner Company.
