Ancier is a media executive who programmed broadcasting for television networks Fox, The WB -- now The CW -- and NBC Entertainment. He is also a former president of BBC Worldwide America.
Neuman is a past president of Walt Disney Television. Goddard heads a design firm in Los Angeles and has produced off-Broadway shows.
