Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The president of entertainment for the UPN, in charge of all series development and programming directions, Michael Sullivan has had a varied career both in the networks war rooms and as a producer of series such as the ABC sitcoms "Growing Pains" and "Just the 10 of Us." Sullivan has been helping to take UPN further than just being the home of the latest "Star Trek" incarnation. Among series choices scheduled for the 1997-98 season were "Ruby," featuring Whoopi Goldberg voicing an outrageous puppet, and "Head Over Heels," a sitcom which has resurrected the acting career of Connie Stevens, as well as shows like "Moesha," "Sparks" and "In the House" geared to a primarily African-American audience.
