Executive producers Ned Brown and Melissa White returned to HKM after having departed from satellite Directors Bureau two years ago to establish Rock Fight, which will continue to operate as a separate entity under HKM management. Eden Diebel signed on from Headquarters, while Christian Loubek took off to Anonymous, as did former exec producer Lisa Margulis. Jacobs/Briere, who joined from HSI, made a wacky case for the new vid-kid in town Fuse, via a series of the risque promos featuring ghetto variations of familiar "mainstream" music network programs, and Michael Karbelnikoff settled a standoff between George Steinbrenner and Derek Jeter, for Visa.
