HBO entertainment chief to exit post

NEW YORK — HBO said Sunday that Entertainment President Carolyn Strauss was leaving her post at the premium cable channel, where she helped develop programs such as “The Sopranos” and “Six Feet Under” and foster an environment that attracted top-notch creative talent. The HBO veteran is in discussions about taking on a new role with the network, probably in the form of a producing deal, a person familiar with the talks said. Her departure was first reported on the blog Deadline Hollywood Daily. Colleagues who talked to Strauss over the weekend said she didn’t elaborate on the reasons for making the move. In the last few years, HBO has struggled to maintain its standing as a top purveyor of culturally resonant hits with the conclusion of popular fare including “Deadwood” and “Sex and the City.” For the full story visit http://www.latimes.com/business/la-et-hbo17mar17,1,5013994.story
