"We used the full extent of today's technology," says Andrew Solt, Executive Producer and CEO of SOFA Entertainment, which purchased all 1,050 hours of "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1990.
"Usually when there is a major historic moment, it's seen on every channel," notes Solt. Yet few tapes had been transferred to a contemporary format until Solt obtained the rights. Today he continues to transfer and remaster them. Solt's other credits range from the 1979 TV special "Heroes Of Rock And Roll" and 1988 feature documentary "Imagine: John Lennon" to the 1991 Warner Brothers theatrical feature film "This is Elvis" to the 1995 TV documentary series "The History Of Rock 'N' Roll" and 2006 home video "Elvis: The Ed Sullivan Shows." "For so many people who experienced those first shows originally, including myself," adds Solt, "we remember where we were.

Andrew Solt of SOFA Entertainment (which owns the Sullivan archive) said Lubinsky's enthusiasm and obvious appreciation for what the shows meant convinced him to go with Lubinsky over other persistent suitors.
"He is a gifted producer who has great instincts and a rare passion for the variety format," Solt said. "Not to be overlooked, of course, is the fact TJ is great to work with. At his core, I think he's a true showman - a comfortable host, a knowledgeable music specialist and an excellent producer with golden-gut instincts." Those instincts can be a bit drastic, considering the material. Lubinsky told Solt that in order to make Ed Sullivan successful as a fundraising vehicle, "we have to take Ed out of it."
