Daytime Head Angelica McDaniel Exits CBS

  • Variety
Longtime exec Angelica McDaniel has exited her post as executive VP in daytime programs, CBS Entertainment. McDaniel leaves amid a restructuring that will see her department absorbed by current programming, headed by Amy Resisenbach.

The move is being made in an effort to streamline the reporting structure at CBS Entertainment under president Kelly Kahl. That effort gives CBS a reporting structure that more closely resembles those found at other broadcast networks.

McDaniel has been with CBS since 2010. She oversaw the launch of “The Talk,” the roundtable talker that has grown steadily to rival ABC’s long-established “The View” in the 11 a.m. hour. In her network role, McDaniel also supervises soaps “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” and gameshows “Let’s Make a Deal” and “The Price Is Right.”

Deadline was the first to report the news of McDaniel’s departure from CBS.

10 Celebrities You Never Knew Were Hosting New Game Shows

Game shows are experiencing a crazy renaissance. Not only are tons of game shows launching with innovative new concepts, but many of the old classics our parents and grandparents used to watch are making their way back to the small screen, too. And in many cases, it’s well-known actors who are heading up the shows, serving as comical, entertaining, and enthusiastic hosts.

Should celebrities really be game show hosts? Of course many have successfully made that transition, like Drew Carey who took over for Bob Barker on The Price is Right, Steve Harvey, who has reinvigorated Family Feud, Howie Mandel, who put Deal Or No Deal on the map, and Wayne Brady who has introduced Let’s Make a Deal to a whole new generation.

How a Mac Miller Doc Got Squashed: Director Explains Project’s Quick Demise
To quote the late great Mac Miller, “Dang!”

It’s been nearly nine months since the untimely passing of rapper-producer Miller from an accidental overdose of cocaine and fentanyl, and hardly a week goes by without news of unreleased songs discovered (“Benji the Dog” was leaked in May) or tributes being released (Flying Lotus has the latest with “Thank U Malcolm” and “Find Your Own Way Home”).

Canadian filmmaker Cj Wallis had the best project brewing, however. Monday, the director tweeted that his Margrette Bird Pictures, a New Orleans-based company he founded with Mallory Kennedy, was to commence pre-production on a documentary detailing the minutiae of Miller’s life, friends and music.

He would have come into this project with some doc cachet. Wallis is an animator, director and writer, as well as a creative director for Curren$y’s Jetlife collective who has worked with Wiz Kalifa, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.
