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.

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?
Quote from: Mark Goodson
"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."

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

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.

the question is who moves into the “producer” position vacated by Adam since he moved to Co-EP, do Sue and Stan move to producers or they remain Co producers or does the game producer move into the producer position, and where does it leave Gina Edwards Nyman, she should be more than a Coordinating or Supervising Producer, which I thought she should have Been in a higher title years ago.

I'm going to assume you have no idea what Gina does on the show, given that I don't even know what she does on the show and I'm generally in a better position to know those things than most people.  Given that, how do you have any basis to know whether or not she should receive a promotion?

I really don’t know what she does, I know at one point she was backstage giving technicians thumbs up and thumbs down, and telling the audio booth hand over head for an overbid or no hands overhead during the one bids. There’s a picture in the golden gallery.

So you admit you have no idea what you're talking about.
