The LA Times ran an obituary today for Universal program executive Nora O’Brien, who died Wednesday night shortly after collapsing on the set of the series “Parenthood,” based on the 1989 feature film. The cause of death is believed to be a brain aneurysm. O’Brien was 44 years old.
“She was talented, smart and insightful,” Stern said. “She had great integrity, not only about her work but also in how she approached life. She stuck up for people no matter what; she didn’t play politics. She was really sincere, and that’s rare in our business.”
