by Pat Cerasaro - Dec 20, 2013

Last night I had the pleasure of speaking to two of the hottest producers in Hollywood and on Broadway all about their recent smash hit December with the ratings bonanza of NBC's live presentation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's THE SOUND OF MUSIC as well as the three-network tent-pole two-night TV event, BONNIE & CLYDE - the peerless Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. Discussing all aspects of the unprecedented live presentation, Zadan and Meron outline the process of bringing the gigantic production to the small screen and grant us a vivid look behind the scenes of the big show. Additionally, Zadan and Meron comment on the social media frenzy that occurred during the 25+ million-viewed telecast as well as their reaction to criticism of country music superstar Carrie Underwood in the starring role, as well as their longstanding relationship with NBC in general. Plus, Zadan and Meron also clue us in on what elements they seek out in special events such as this as we look ahead to next year's confirmed major live musical - whatever could it be?! Besides all about THE SOUND OF MUSIC, Zadan and Meron also offer us the 411 on a number of other projects immediately upcoming in 2014 and far beyond, with a special focus on their just-announced Harvey Weinstein collaboration on a feature film version of Stephen Schwartz's beloved PIPPIN, as well as first news on a forthcoming original Beach Boys jukebox musical currently in development and preliminary information on the pilot for a new musical series inspired by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren titled SONGBYRD, set to shoot in January. All of that, reflections on last year's sensational Academy Awards broadcast hosted by the controversial Seth MacFarlane and a look ahead to this year's Zadan & Meron-produced Oscars show - set to be hosted by daytime queen Ellen Degeneres - as well as stories from their early years producing cabaret showcases and penning books on theatre as well as much, much more in this all-encompassing conversation with the most important men in movie musicals.

Quest Inspar to Accelerate Development of Nextgen Pipeline Robots After Raise of $4.2 million Investment From Five Elms CapitalQuest Inspar to Accelerate Development of Nextgen Pipeline Robots After Raise of $4.2 million Investment From Five Elms Capital
by BWW News Desk - Dec 3, 2013

"Lessons learned from our Tacoma project are invaluable," said Milton Altenberg, CEO of Quest Inspar. Lining water lines under streets in suburbs is more forgiving than a dense city. 'The partnership with Five Elms will expedite our development cycle to address the desire on the part of our customers to increase both speed and run lengths for a single direction lining pass. This will also open up a new horizon to service intrastate pipelines, which our industry customers also have high expectations to have rehabilitated in place." (more...)
