Erik Rechsteiner has been boosted to Svp Current Series and NBCUniversal International exec Kristen Del Pero has been brought over to Universal TV as Svp Current Series and International Development.
The moves come as Universal has reached 40 series currently ordered to production, most in the studio’s history.
“I’m extremely proud of the unprecedented growth at Universal Television over the last three years,” division president Pearlena Igbokwe said in a press release. “It gives me great pleasure to recognize those executives who have helped make it possible and will continue to advance our studio.”
Del Pero and Rechsteiner will report to JoAnn Alfano, Evp Current Series and International Development.
Universal also promoted three director-level execs: Brittany Little, to VP Drama Development; Brian Salb to VP Current Series; and Megan Macmillan to VP Comedy Development.
Del Pero and Rechsteiner will both report to JoAnn Alfano, Universal TV’s executive VP of current series and international development.
“I’m extremely proud of the unprecedented growth at Universal Television over the last three years and it gives me great pleasure to recognize those executives who have helped make it possible and will continue to advance our studio,” said Pearlena Igbokwe, Universal TV president, in a statement.
Rechsteiner has worked on “The Good Place” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” for the duration of their runs, and oversees NBC’s “Superstore” as well as new comedy “Sunnyside,” in addition to a new comedy from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock that stars Ted Danson as the mayor of Los Angeles. He also handles NBC drama “New Amsterdam.
In my review of last week’s episode, I noted that it must have begun life as a one-hour story before being split in two, which meant we’d spend the final season’s first two weeks in table-setting mode. Instead, this week’s “Part Two” immediately starts paying off many of the ideas established

The Good Place Season 4 Episode 2
Now that’s more like it.
Through three seasons, The Good Place has aired two installments on one night for its premieres. This includes clear two-parters like season 2’s “Everything Is Great!” and season 3’s “Everything Is Bonzer!” Even season 1 had a seemingly unrelated double feature of “Everything is Fine!” and “Flying.”
Given that track record and the “Part 1” and “Part 2” after season 4’s first two episodes, it seems clear that Michael Schur and company envisioned “A Girl From Arizona” as one installment. It’s unclear why NBC opted not to air it all one one night. Given the conclusive arc of “A Girl from Arizona Part 2,” however, the network definitely should have.
“A Girl from

“Sting heroically helped us launch Rock Under the Stars in 2016. In the following years, Don Henley and Dead & Co. featuring John Mayer helped us make it one of La’s most exciting and elite fundraisers,” said Oceana Board President Keith Addis. “This year, with the generous support of the amazing Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rock Under the Stars is firmly established as a world-class event which will help Oceana fund its mission to stop the scourge of ocean plastic pollution.”

Across its first three seasons, the afterlife comedy from “Parks and Recreation” and “The Office” alum Michael Schur has proven itself to be one of the most narratively unpredictable sitcoms to ever grace television. Between Season 1’s paradigm-shifting twist, the multiple timelines and the many, many memory wipes since, one could be forgiven for needing a refresher to keep everything straight.
So, to best understand how “The Good Place” will come to an end, let’s start by going back to the beginning.

Season 1 kicked off with Eleanor (Kristen Bell) waking up in what she would come to understand as the afterlife. Michael (Ted Danson), the architect of the Good Place, and Janet
At the end of last season, the merry gang of bad people who got good — Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), and Jason struck a deal with the Neutral Zone’s Judge Gen and the Bad Place’s Shawn (Marc Evan Jackson) to greenlight a new experiment to determine,
“Going into locations is always a challenge,” says Phillips, who joined the series in its third season. “You travel somewhere and are limited by when you can shoot, when you can prep and how much time you have there.”
Location shoots involve everything from painting to replacing entire rooms of furniture with the proper set dressing. Phillips also may need to design false walls if the script needs a different layout than a room presents.
Everything done on location needs to be meticulously planned,
Regardless of what fans thought about the ending of Game of Thrones, the series did win Outstanding Drama Series. I imagine it won for everything that it accomplished as a whole. Peter Dinklage also won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series again, which is great!
Then there’s the Amazon series Fleabag, which took home four awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. I’ve never watched the show, but plan to start watching it soon.
Case in point, ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, NBC and PBS this year accounted for 23 percent of all nominations, then went on to grab just 14 percent of the awards (or 18 out of 132 Emmys). In recent years, Game of Thrones, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Handmaid’s Tale and Barry have dominated Emmy Night — all hailing from premium cable or streaming,
It's safe to say that their appearance at the Emmys was bittersweet for fans. While the show was nominated for outstanding comedy series, it's also approaching their fourth and final season. We're certainly going to miss seeing these humans on screen together. See more photos from their night ahead.
Co-created by Hader and Berg, "Barry" is about a hitman who is trying to change his life after finding passion for acting. Hader took home the statuette for his portrayal of a hitman and aspiring actor in the series.

Amazon’s Prime Video started the night off on a real hot streak, winning the first four awards of the evening — two apiece for “Fleabag” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” — and five out of the initial six.
All told, HBO won nine trophies tonight, Amazon claimed seven, and Netflix took home four. See all of Sunday’s winners and nominees below.
