Ken Warwick Signs Eight-Figure Deal to Continue on ‘Idol’; Richest Showrunner Deal Ever?

Jul 24, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In what Variety says is a deal that could make “American Idol” Executive Producer and Showrunner Ken Warwick the highest paid showrunner in Hollywood, he has signed a new three-year deal that the trade paper says is worth “eight figures.”


For us who are numbers challenged (we journalists, after all, tip the scale at high single digit salaries) that means the deal is worth somewhere between $10 million and $99 million over the three-years.


‘Idol’ host Ryan Seacrest recently signed a three-year deal with the show’s producers worth a reported $45 million.

  1. Looks nice, i like this blog

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
