Plestis Shifting From NBC to Universal Media Studios?

Nov 17, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The latest buzz on NBC reality chief Craig Plestis has the executive possibly headed to sister company Universal Media Studios.
NBC has maintained a strict silence regarding Mr. Plestis since word first surfaced on blogger Nikki Finke’s Web site that NBC was considering replacing Mr. Plestis with Paul Telegdy of BBC Worldwide America. Then last week, Mr. Plestis told the Hollywood Reporter that he was staying put.
“I’ll be here for a long time at NBC,” Mr. Plestis told the trade.
However, that hasn’t stopped the industry from speculating that Mr. Plestis could still be vacating his current post as head of alternative for the network.
According to a knowledgeable industry insider, Mr. Plestis may actually be headed to NBC sibling UMS. He would either head up a unit in charge of unscripted programming or set up shop as an independent producer.
When asked about the possibility of Mr. Plestis shifting to UMS, a representative for NBC declined comment.


  1. Tell him to call me asap if wants to make a splash and collaborate on new smash hits. I sold one of my reality show ideas “The Next Best Thing” to ABC through a production company where I received producer credit. I could meet with networks/companies but need representation so its the catch 22. I was told that ideas rise to the top over experience. I am seeking someone from WMA, CAA, UTA, ICM, Manager, Entertainment Lawyer, Reality Producers to guide my career and take it to the next level by shopping/packaging/brokering my other 30 ideas in which several can be sold on a dime and hits if developed with top people well suited for the major networks as well as cable/syndication. I am very creative and have a lot to offer its just a question of getting to the right people who believe in my ideas and can make it come to fruition. I have no problem if the agent gives my ideas to there client showrunners (As most know who I am) just as long as I am paid market value compensation, creator credit, and will collaborate with the producers on the shows. The bottom line is I can be extremely marketable and a major player in this business for my ideas in TV/Film. I eat, sleep, and drink this 24 hours a day as well as have an encyclopedia of knowledge on sports, entertainment, celeb pop-culture. I eventually would like to form a production company with a partner and create innovative TV. Hope to meet with someone before the holidays. Please put out feelers to anyone of your contacts as there must be someone who can deliver for me. Thanks

  2. I have a show, that like Desperate Houswives, has not been pcked up by anyone. With all of the junk on TV that is passing for a dramatic series I can’t understand why no one will give mine a serious look. Like Desperate Houswives you never know where the next hit is coming from.

  8. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
