Programmer responsible for The Tudors, Being Erica quits CBC
At a time when CBC recruiters are in L.A. trying to lure back Canadian writing talent, CBC programming chief Fred Fuchs, who’s credited with bringing Being Erica, The Border and The Tudors to the Ceeb, is leaving the broadcaster for a job with U.S. channel Starz. His new gig is that of executive producer of Camelot, by Toronto’s Take 5 Productions. The show is the creation of The Tudors’ Morgan O’Sullivan and Michael Hirst and will begin filming 10 episodes in Ireland this summer.
