...
Roy Bank, President, Television, Merv Griffin Entertainment: As President of Television of Merv Griffin Entertainment, one of the industries most respected and historically rich production companies, Roy Bank is leading a resurgence of the late Merv Griffin’s brand. A seasoned entertainment industry veteran, Bank has seen his creativity and leadership flourish while working with such well-known companies as Mark Burnett Productions, Reveille Productions and alongside TV icon Woody Frasier. Some of his notable successes are Martha, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?; (on which Bank served as both the Creator and Executive Producer); and The Apprentice. His expertise on both the business and creative sides make Bank the perfect leader to take Merv Griffin Entertainment to the next level. In 2005 Bank took the role as Head of Development, Production and Corporate Operations for Mark Burnett Productions (MBP), where he quickly began work on The Apprentice and Rockstar: INXS. While holding that position, the company experienced record growth with the launch of new prime-time shows, daytime programming and the expansion into on-line content. In addition to the continued success of its prime-time programming strategies, MBP’s 2005-2006 saw the premiere of Martha, the new Martha Stewart daytime program which was picked up for a 4th season, and Gold Rush on AOL, the largest internet event initiative to date. It was also in 2006 that Bank was named to The Hollywood Reporter’s “Next Generation, Hollywood’s Top 35 Executives 35 and Under.” In 2007, Bank orchestrated a major shift in the type of programming that MBP is known for with the introduction of two new prime-time network game shows. First, in early 2007, Bank served as Creator and Executive Producer of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, which premiered on FOX as the most watched game show premiere in television history as well as being one of the most syndicated programs internationally.
...
Before joining MBP, Bank worked in development at Reveille Productions, which was founded by the current Co-Chairman of NBC, Ben Silverman.

thedailywhat: So This Is Happening of the Day: Wakka-wakka-what?? Deadline is reporting that Merv Griffin Entertainment is teaming up with Namco Bandai Games America to produce a Wipeout-style reality series based on the classic video game Pac-Man. "The idea we have is to take what Pac-Man is and bring it to life," says Roy Bank, Merv Griffin's president of TV. "[T]o bring what is essentially the world's biggest game of tag to television." This will mark the Pac-Man brand's first association with television since Pac-Man: The Animated Series, which aired on ABC in the early 80s. [deadline / image: instructables.] This was already done in Club Dread! I still think the photo is funny though.
