There has been a big shakeup at Fox Broadcasting today: Fox Searchlight
President Peter Rice will reportedly replace Peter Liguori as chairman
of the TV network. Rice, who’s credited for the success of the indie
arm of the 20th Century Fox’s movie studio, will be replaced by Fox
Searchlight vets Nancy Utley and Steve Gilula. Fox Searchlight was
responsible for Slumdog Millionaire, this year’s Oscar winner for Best Picture. Ligouri had been at the network for five years.
