Bloomberg reports Spielberg is not happy with Viacom and Paramount, and is looking to return to his hometown of Universal City:
David Geffen and Steven Spielberg, co-founders of the studio, are negotiating to move to NBC Universal from Viacom Inc.'s Paramount, the New York Times reported last month, citing unidentified people close to the talks. Spielberg's production agreement with Paramount ends at the end of 2008.
But for our purposes, that's not the important news. This is:
While Viacom talks with Spielberg, the company is also building up its relationship with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., the maker of the ``Shrek'' movies ... Viacom's Nickelodeon cable-television channel will air a TV series made by the animation studio, he said.
Shows what I know. Nobody over at the DWA campus has told me squat about a new teevee series. The gang over there hasn't done anything for the tube since Father of the Pride went off the air.
