Ryan Seacrest Is No. 1 on THR's Reality Power List
As much as he loves his 2 1/2-year-old post as CEO of RelativityREAL, a joint venture with Relativity Media’s Ryan Kavanaugh (“I am accidentally a much better CEO than I had any reason to think I would be,” he says), Forman can’t quite shake the experience of being an executive producer. “I was a hands-on, day-to-day showrunner for most of my career,” he says. “I’m never happier than when I’m out in the field actually calling shots and whispering in the director’s ear. The good news is, I’m still able to do a lot of that.” That’s why the creator of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition has recently been “literally running from edit bay to edit bay” as he works on RelativityREAL’s new military-family reunion series Coming Home for Lifetime and Carson Kressley’s makeover show, Carson-Nation, for OWN. With 13 series currently in production, they’re the latest in Forman’s library of programming that feature “real people having real emotions.” Says Forman, “I’m allergic to those shows where I feel producers’ fingerprints all over it and where you see people behaving in a way that no human being would actually behave.”
