Adam Glick Returns to Warner Bros. Television as Business Affairs Topper
The move comes as Dan Limerick departes to tackle TV business affairs for WME.
Adam Glick is returning to Warner Bros. Television, his home for more than 13 years, after a stint at the burgeoning Warner Horizon unit. In his return, Glick will now hold the top post in WBTV business affairs, taking over the role of executive vp from departing head Dan Limerick — who heads to WME.
“Adam has been one of the studio’s top business executives for many years and has served in each of his roles with distinction," said Warner Bros. Television Group exec vp Brett Paul, who made the announcement on Monday with president-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.”
As for Limerick, he moves to WME to head TV business affairs. The agency, in the wake of its IMG merger, has been broadening its reach across the board. He'll closely with their roster of mega-producers such as Dick Wolf, Howard Gordon and Greg Berlanti, handling TV-related business affairs for scripted, non-scripted, broadcasting, and digital deals Limerick's hire coincides with WME vet Catherine Sugar moving over to head global TV business affairs.
This will not be the first time Glick has led WBTV's business affairs. He previously shared co-head status with Limerick, between 2008 and 2013, before moving over to build and expand the team at WHTV. The latter has been a growing unit for the company, and Glick's purview there included such scripted hits as Rizzoli & Isles (TNT), Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) and Longmire (Netflix), as well as Big Four reality king The Voice (NBC) and The Bachelor franchise (ABC).
As lead negotiator of all WBTV's business affairs activities, Glick will oversee the staff and broker deals with performers, producers, writers and directors. He previously worked at WBTV from 1999 through his move over to WHTV.
