New EP Named
« on: July 15, 2019, 03:57:28 PM »
Variety.com is reporting that Evelyn Warfel has been promoted to executive producer/showrunner of "The Price is Right," becoming the first woman to hold the position. In non-TPIR news, the same article notes that John Quinn has been tapped to hold EP/showrunner duties on "Let's Make a Deal." Quinn holds the same duties on the "Press Your Luck" revival at ABC.

Additionally, Adam Sandler has been promoted to co-EP, in addition to remaining as Director.

"Change isn't always good. Sometimes changing things is a terrible mistake." - Bob Barker

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I was aware of Adam Sandler's new position; I just wanted to share the new EP's identity as soon as possible.

Congrats to Evelyn!! I'm glad that they didn't stretch the announcement for any longer than they had to. I have the utmost faith that she'll keep the show of solid footing, while still adding her own touches to it.

Any word on whether Stan and Sue are still with the show?
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work." -Mark Goodson

I wonder if either of them would be open to bringing back retired games like Super Saver, Super Ball! and Penny Ante.  Since they didn't introduce a new game in Season 47 maybe they should think about un-retiring a few games.
