Say It Ain't So, Tony DiSanto

ben_silverman_sunglasses.jpgSeriously?  Is this the guy you want to work for?  Ugh.  

Oh, well... It's just a shame. 

Tony, you have a reputation for being one of the good guys in Hollywood and you're going to work for Ben Silverman

Come on, man! 

I'm on-board with you wanting to leave MTV and get back to your real passion - being a content producer. 

I'm on-board with the company name - DiGaDi (Santo) and Ga (for partner Liz Gately).  DiGa.  I'm sure there is also some foreign word that it translates to that gives it another dimension.

What I'm not on-board with is you partnering with Electus

Every studio in town would most likely want to make a deal with you guys and now you're stuck going to Holiday parties with Ben Silverman and Ricky Van Veen

You're better than that, Tony!

Now, most people who read this blog regularly know that I haven't been too kind to Mr. Silverman over the past year or so (several examples are listed below)...

Example A; Example B; Example C; Example D; Example E; Example F; Example G; Example H; Example I; Example J; Example K; Example L; Example M; Example N

tony_disanto.jpg... but, Tony, you're being way too nice here.  You're actually giving Ben a hint of credibility.  Credibility that he doesn't deserve. 

However, maybe it's not over. 

Perhaps something can be done to stop it... something like Howard Beale in "Network" screaming to "Stop the CCA Deal now!" (fyi, the fictional Saudi Arabian deal with CCA - the parent company of fictional TV network UBS).

If enough people actually care, we could mobilize and march on Electus Headquarters (which I believe is the Wynn Resort Las Vegas) screaming over and over:  STOP THE DIGA / ELECTUS DEAL NOW!  STOP THE DIGA / ELECTUS DEAL NOW! 

Ah, nevermind.  Good luck, Tony

It's Ben's world and you're trespassing Jill.

Hollywood Producer said:

I seriously don't get what Ben Silverman is doing. I agree with some earlier blog you did basically saying that it's a production company. Plain and simple. Yes, there is an advertising component to it but almost all production companies have that.

Molly Glover said:

I keep waiting for Electus to do something. I've only seen the one Orbit commercial with Jason Bateman. And the Ben Silverman sizzle reel that Jill had posted at one time.

g said:

DiGa is the command form of “tell” in Spanish. In English, it means hacky dismissable production company who’ll be lucky to ever sell anything outside of MTV.

Hi Jill

Well guess Ben and electus have really stolen your charm Tony. They Must have offered him some nice amount of MEAt for which he fell for. WISHINg luck for dear tony ANd his humility.

About Medea

Medea Medea was a real bitch from classical mythology - as most famously dramatized by Euripides.

She was a sorceress and wife of Jason, whom she assisted in obtaining the Golden Fleece. When Jason deserted her, she chopped up their children. One could say, Medea acted as rationally as a major media company.
