New HBO Entertainment chief married to comedian

Anyone who worried about the future of comedy on HBO after the departure of Chris Albrecht and the end of the Aspen festival can maybe take a quick sigh of relief. Sue Naegle, named HBO’s new president of HBO Entertainment yesterday and put in charge of all series programming and specials, is not only the former head of the TV department at UTA (where she helped bring Six Feet Under to HBO), but also the present and future wife of writer/comedian Dana Gould. So that’s good. Right? Right. Of course, it is. Phew. I feel better now. How about you?
