HBO Boss Ousted After Alleged Assault May 10, 2007

Posted by iniquity in Entertainment.

Chris Albrecht, the man who built HBO into a TV powerhouse, has been ousted by its parent company, Time Warner, after being arrested on Sunday on suspicion of assaulting his girlfriend in Las Vegas.

Mr Albrecht, the chairman and chief executive of Home Box Office (HBO) said on Tuesday that he was taking a leave of absence from the group, where he oversaw hits including The Sopranos and Sex in the City, to regain control of his alcoholism. Hours later, however, he made a second announcement, confirming that he had resigned “at the request of Time Warner”.
