That kid from The Apprentice is running Trump's new studio

andy litinskySurprise, surprise. Donald Trump is opening up his own production studio and he has tapped a contestant from The Apprentice to run it. Anybody remember Andy Litinsky? He is the young college student from Harvard who appeared on season two of The Apprentice. He was fired-- only for being young. Three months after the show ended, Andy was hired by Trump to work as a project manager for his real estate ventures. Specifically, he managed the construction of the 64-story Trump International Hotel and Condominium in Las Vegas. Now he's been tapped to head up Trump's yet-to-be-named production company. The reason for starting it, according to Trump, is to develop new programs. I'd be totally skeptical of this venture, considering Trump's past with beauty pageants, except that Andy is in charge. Is he edgy? Who knows? He's young and completely inexperienced in television production; hopefully no preconceived notions about how "the industry" works. Perfect for accidentally stumbling upon some great hit!

I'm sure now that the Donald is a tv star, he thinks he can do better than what's out there. Let's just hope that he can. After reading "Desperate Networks" I think it takes having a name like Trump behind you to even get seen. It might help to get a meeting with some hire ups in the networks but might not help get "heard".
