Talk about working your way up the chain. Former USA Network executive assistant Bill McGoldrick was just named the executive vice president of original scripted programming for the network he got his start at back in 1998. McGoldrick was most recently USA’s senior vice president of original scripted programming.

“Bill has an incredible track record in developing and managing the success of our strong and diverse slate of scripted programming,” said USA co-president Jeff Wachtel. “We know he will continue to lead the network to even greater achievements, this summer and beyond.”

Nice to see the whole American dream still works for some people. Your humble Fishie is hoping to be executive grand overlord of Mediabistro one day.
