Los Angeles, United States - June 13, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Los Angeles, CA - June 13, 2019 - Media Executive & Executive Producer Eric Weinberger has announced the formation of Eric Weinberger Productions and Media Consulting. Weinberger, whose vision for the last 20 years has defined live sports, news, and entertainment will continue to bring the best in production focusing on linear and digital entertainment companies that produce live events, monetize content, and identify new on-air talent to host content across all platforms. Eric Weinberger Productions is focused on helping companies scale and produce premium content.

Over the past 12 months, Eric Weinberger Productions has partnered with sports and entertainment companies to launch new activations. In December of 2018, Weinberger produced the live stream for Rolling Loud Los Angeles, one of the largest hip-hop festivals in the world, and executive produced Livezone, the pre and post festival show for LivexLive Media (NASDAQ: LIVX). Weinberger recruited music journalists and personalities to host the event and worked closely with national sponsors to monetize the event across multiple social networks. Livezone was produced and modeled after the various on-location sports shows Weinberger has produced over the years such as Thursday Night Football and the NFL Draft.

Said Weinberger: "I love working with new and legacy media companies as they find more ways to “eventize” productions and monetize their content. Premium content has never been more in demand and this is a great time for me to use my experience to assist storytellers and creators."

Weinberger was the Executive Producer at the NFL Network until 2015. While at the NFL he was instrumental in creating all live programming for the league-owned channel. He also helped grow events like the NFL Draft, NFL Combine and Super Bowl Week. Before NFL Network Weinberger served as Senior Producer for the Sports and Entertainment program Best Damn Sports Show Period at Fox Sports. Following his years at Fox Sports and the NFL, Weinberger then broadened his experience as President of the Bill Simmons Media Group and Executive Producer for programming on HBO including Any Given Wednesday and the long form documentary Andre The Giant. Weinberger currently is a member of the Board of such community organizations as Hav-A-Sole, a non-profit organization that provides footwear for the homeless, and The California Golden Bears youth hockey organization.

Jun 17, 2019

LOS ANGELES — Brand familiarity isn't everything when it comes to attracting audiences to the multiplex, and Hollywood is learning that lesson the hard way this summer with a slew of underperforming sequels and reboots. That so-called franchise fatigue came to a head this weekend with the releases of "Men in Black: International" and "Shaft." The writing may have been on the wall after neither an X-Men movie ("Dark Phoenix") nor a Godzilla movie ("Godzilla: King of the Monsters") could get moviegoers enthusiastic enough to turn out. But this weekend, down over 50% from last year, is the worst yet....

Jun 17, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY — The cult comedy Napoleon Dynamite turns 15 years old this month, a milestone for a movie that became an early breakaway hit in today's era of pop-culture geek celebration. The movie that created the "Vote for Pedro" T-shirt and made Napoleon's disgusted exclamation of "gosh!" into a 2004 catchphrase is celebrating its anniversary this month. Made for just $400,000, it would ultimately gross over $46 million as a word-of-mouth hit before Twitter and Facebook took off. The movie told the story of its socially awkward title character, who ultimately triumphed because of his quirks rather than...
