The one-time LA Times and Hollywood Reporter vet, sidelined in recent years by some very nasty Anthony Pellicano business, could always be counted on to chime in under her real, full name. Today, some Hollywood trade watchers were stunned to learn that a journalist who has been out of the game for many years was hired as Deadline’s new film editor. She takes over for Mike Fleming, who moved into Finke’s vacated EIC perch. From today’s announcement:
Both [TV editor Nellie] Andreeva and Fleming have a long history with Busch. She hired and mentored Andreeva at The Hollywood Reporter, and she and Fleming worked closely together for years at Variety, dominating film industry news.
